Information about entering Parliament

All visitors to Parliament are requested to register their visit in advance. After registering your name, you will be sent an individual QR code. When you arrive, please show this code together with your official photo ID at the entrance.

If online registration is not possible in advance, access is also possible by scanning an official photo ID at the desk in the entrance area. Please note that this may result in longer waiting times. We will conduct a security check before admitting you to the Parliament Building.

In either case, please bring your photo ID with you when you visit Parliament. Please keep in mind that a coat check is mandatory.
