Copenhagen Night of Culture

Every year in October, Copenhagen hosts the 'Night of Culture'. Museums, galleries, churches and theatres, libraries, exhibitions halls and the Rosenborg Palace all open their doors during the night so that visitors can explore the city's attractions after dark.

During the Night of Culture there are street parties, music, dancing and food stalls throughout the city. You will need a pass to get into all of the venues, but this will also give you access to the free shuttle transport around the city.

For more information visit the Night of Culture guide.

Copenhagen is a fascinating city in Denmark, and is home to popular events all year round. Copenhagen hosts cultural celebrations, sporting events, open-air operas and film festivals. It is also a great city destination for taking tours and excursions. You will soon discover that one of the great joys of Copenhagen is its compact size, which means that most of its main sights and attractions can be seen on foot. The sheer density of attractions within the city means that organised tours are often a good way to make the most of a short visit and there are plenty of walking, boat, bicycle and bus tours to choose from.

As with many European cities, Copenhagen has an abundance of bars and restaurants. Copenhagen; however, has a beautiful harbour with waterfront cafes making it a popular focal point in the evenings. The cafes are trendy meeting places, and at weekends many transform into bars and mini nightclubs.

Copenhagen is a year round city break destination. To avoid the crowds, the best time to visit would be in spring or autumn. Summers are warm and ideal for enjoying the outdoor entertainment and activities. Winters in Copenhagen are extremely cold and many of the lakes freeze; however the Christmas markets are worth a visit and draw tourists from all over the world.

Copenhagen makes a great city break destination because of its proximily to the UK. Cheap flights are available from UK airports and there is a vast range of accommodation in the city. The capital has a variety of places to stay, ranging from small cosy guesthouses on the outskirts of the city, to luxury 5* hotels in the centre of the action.
