On Friday, thousands of people defied the cold and rainy weather in order to participate in Copenhagen Culture Night.
For more than 26 years, the Copenhagen Culture Night has been one of Copenhagen's most popular and well-attended cultural events of the year.
The Culture Night created a festive atmosphere throughout the city, where the entire cultural life of Copenhagen merged and opened up to inspire and give insight into an otherwise closed-off world. Government buildings, corporate businesses, museums, and cultural landmarks all opened their doors to the public.
In order to attend either selected events or the entire event, attendees could buy a “Culture Ticket” at a price of 95 DDK per person.
Last year saw a record high number of people attending the Copenhagen Culture Night, with 94 000 people having bought a ticket and an additional 100 000 people participating in street activities.
This year the number of attendees dropped to a third of the record set in 2018.
Never-the-less, the efforts made this year were the same as any previous years. More than 250 museums, theatres, libraries, churches, ministries, parks and plazas all over the city welcomed the public during Copenhagen's largest annual one-day event, showcasing the numerous sides of cultural life in Copenhagen.
From the inner city to Valby, Frederiksberg, Østerbro, Vesterbro, Nørrebro, Northwest, Islands Brygge, Amagerbro and Christianshavn, the city was buzzing. Activities ranged from fine art, light shows, and concerts to the displaying of military bulldozers and equipment in the streets of central Copenhagen.
We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
