Culture Night – Nice to Know

Culture Night for Everyone

Culture Night is the biggest one-day event in Copenhagen. It appeals to everyone who wants to explore the city and discover hidden gems and new exciting trends. All events are unique and can only be experienced on Culture Night.

Time and Place

Culture Night takes place in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg and always in week 41 on the Friday just before the Autumn Holiday from 18:00 – 24:00 (there are, however, a few events that close at 23:00). This year Culture Night is on Friday 11 October, so you can write the date down now and look forward to six hours of unique cultural experiences from around 250 committed and creative organizers.

Culture Night Pass – Your Ticket to it All

All you require to take part in Culture Night is a Culture Night Pass. It costs DKK125 and gives you and two children under 12 free of charge admission to all the events on Culture Night plus free transportation in Greater Copenhagen. Read more about transportation here.

As of 30 September, you can buy your Culture Night Pass here and download it, so that you can show it on your phone. If you prefer a physical Culture Night Pass, you can buy one in all 7-Eleven shops in Greater Copenhagen.

Programme – Your Guide to Culture Night

As of 1 September, you can see the entire programme for Culture Night 2024 here. In the programme you can sort in areas and categories, so that you quickly get an overview of the events which match your preferred districts and interests or discover something completely new.

Events and Booking

Check the programme to see whether some of the events you are interested in require booking in advance. You can book directly from the event’s page from 2 October 12:00.


The programme will also keep you updated if one of your planned events is changed or cancelled. It happens very rarely, but it does happen, so it is always a good idea to check.

My Culture Night – Save your Favourites

You can ‘like’ the events you are especially interested in so that they are automatically added to your personal list ‘My Culture Night’, or you can choose to have your list sent to you by e-mail. This function simply requires that you accept all cookies when you enter the website.

Overview on Paper

If you buy a physical Culture Night Pass at 7-Eleven you will be given a printed overview which shows all the organizers and where they are. However, there is no description of the content of the events. Everyone who buys the Culture Night Pass online receive a link from which they can download the overview in PDF format.

Food and Drink

As we say in Denmark: Heroes are nothing without food and drink. Culture Night offers plenty of catering opportunities. Many museums and cultural institutions keep their cafés open – elsewhere there is communal dining and exciting tastings, and there are also organizers who invite visitors to eat their picnics on their premises. Explore the programme and check the many options; you can search specifically for ‘Buy a meal’. Please note that there are some places you have to book a table – check the event’s page.

Family Culture Night will be back 14 March 2025
