Visitor information

Are you interested in visiting the Saxon State Parliament?

You can do so as an individual without a prior invitation. However, please take note of our opening hours and the session schedule, if you would like to attend a plenary session.

We request that large groups of visitors in particular book in advance to ensure that you will have enough space on the viewing stand, and we can organise an attendant to look after your group. Please call and arrange a date for your visit, so that we can coordinate the visitor program with you.

The state parliament is also open to visitors on days when the parliament is not in session. The composition, duties and functions of the state parliament will be explained during a one-hour tour. If requested, and if they are available to do so, delegates will be available to meet with the visitors on these days. We will be happy to organise a tour in your language.

If you want to look around before your visit to the State Parliament, take our virtual tour.
