Ever since 1993, Copenhagen’s culture vultures have been turning into night owls on this October night to take advantage of this extraordinary possibility to visit different museums, art galleries, exhibition halls, churches and other cultural spots participating over the course of the 12-hour event. Admittance to the numerous participating venues only costs 90 kroner.
Not only does the Culture Night pass give you an access to all the places and events, it also enables you to have free transport on the city’s buses, trains and Metro all night long in the Capital Region.
And it also enables you to blood your children in culture as well. While there are a few all-out kids events early in the evening (a dance workshop with a host of DR Ramasjang and a concert by Christine Skou and Ole Kibsgaard), they can have few complaints if you decide to mix in a few preferences of your own. In many cases, simply visiting some of these venues at night (castles, dungeons, secret rooms etc) is an unforgettable experience.
The Culture Pass is available to buy at most of the train stations, all 7-Eleven kiosks, libraries and many cultural institutions in the Copenhagen area.
It is a good idea to download the Culture Night’s app as it includes all the events that are suitable to English-speakers and gives you directions on how to get there.
After all, you don’t want to have the keys to the city and spend most of your time lost on its streets.
