With the Danish parliament reopening today, there will be plenty of festivities as royals, politicians and journalists descend on Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen. But fret not, for you can be there too. Well, sort of.

That's because, as of today, you can view the inside of the Danish parliament building using Google Street View.

The virtual tour, which already offers a peak of the Canadian and Dutch parliament buildings, even allows spectators to enter parliament's chambers and get a unique view from the speaker's chair.

Artistic touch
But as a special bonus, the tour will also permit viewers to see the many works of art hanging on the walls throughout the halls of Christiansborg as part of Google's Art Project.

Viewers can click on an artwork and see it in full resolution while also gaining information about the works.

The video footage of Christiansborg was recorded last autumn, and the tour of the historic building can be seen here.
