Kulturnatten (Culture Night) 2018 Arrives in Copenhagen


Kulturnatten is a celebration of the city's culture and is one of the most popular in the Copenhagen. It's been taking place for over 25 years and is a night of cultural events for people to attend, in over 250 museums, parks, public places, theaters, libraries and more. There are in total over 700 events, so get yourself ready for a big night in Copenhagen!

The idea is to represent the city's culture in many ways and in many places - and to inspire people. There are events that are open to everyone, and even some in the Zoo! To attend the events you need to get a Culture Pass, which you can find here

What is Kulturnatten About?

More than 80,000 people attended Kulturnatten in 2017, and this year could be even bigger. Aimed to be family friendly with plenty of interesting shows for kids, the organisers say...

'The culture night creates the city's biggest annual event, which opens the city on one evening and ties it together in an intense experience of extraordinary cultural events.'

Among these experiences are events in churches, museums, parks, the planetarium - everywhere you can think of! The events are also all curated individually and open to everyone, but you must buy the culture pass - see here
