Culture Night Copenhagen
Already a city known for its liberal attitude and high culture, if you are in Copenhagen in October don’t miss Culture Night.
Museums, churches, cinemas, art studios, theatres and other cultural centres will be throwing open their doors to the public after hours for an extra special cultural feast. There will be special events like live music, art exhibitions and films organised just for the night and you will find loads of things to do just wandering around the city centre.
Many of the events will kick off in the early evening around 5pm so if you need a snack to get you through the night, head to City Hall for pancakes and roast pork sandwiches. While you are at the City Hall why not have a look around? There are exhibitions opening plus music from the Home Guard choir and there are several different tours of the buildings available.
Some of the other events worth dropping in on include designing with Lego at Danish Museum of Architecture; a jazz concert at the Copenhagen Museum; and music, a street kitchen and a bar in the new garden of Gammel Strand.
The best way to get around is to buy a Culture Pass. This all-in-one ticket will cost only 90DKK and will allow you free access to all the Culture Night events plus free public transport between venues. There is even a handy app you can download for free so you can see what is happening when and where, along with a description of the different events.
To get to the City Hall from Generator Copenhagen catch the 11A bus from Borgergade and it will take just over 10 minutes. Or if you are feeling energetic it is only around a quarter of an hour on foot.
