Almost normal procedures after the COVID-19

After a long period with changing restristrictions in the reading rooms the visits to the reading rooms are almost back to normal. It is no longer necessary to show a Covid-19 passport or to wear a mask/shield when you visit the reading rooms. However, we hope you still pay attention and keep your distance, and we expect that you postpone your visit if you experience symptoms. You cannot book a seat in advance but for your information we have not had seating problems in the reading rooms until now. Please read the guidance for visiting the reading rooms here (in Danish).

Also please note that guidance hours are reduced during the summer period.
