250 events to kick off autumn break
Every year Denmark’s capital city invites everyone to experience hundreds of cultural highlights over just one night in order to kick off the autumn school break appropriately.
Over the course of over 25 years, the festive evening of Culture Night has evolved into becoming one of Copenhagen’s biggest annual one-day events, where the city’s entire cultural life works together to create joy and inspiration for both children and adults.
More than 250 museums, theatres, libraries, churches, ministries and parks throughout the city welcome the public on this special occasion. By presenting hundreds of exciting events, Copenhagen has already demonstrated how versatile it is in terms of embracing the many-sided aspects of its cultural life.
