Good to know

You have read the weather forecast and prepared the right clothes. You have decided where to eat your dinner or to eat at home. But what is useful to know before you move out to explore the city during Culture Night? We have collected several practical facts and advice for you.


Culture Night 2020 will take place on October 9 from 18.00.

Remember the Culture Pass

To gain access to the events, you must have a Culture Pass if you are over 12 years. It costs DKK 95 and can be purchased here.

Children under 12 years have free access, but they can get a special Children Culture Pass if they wish to have their own pass.

The Culture Pass has never sold out. However, in the days leading up to and on Culture Night, it is expected that the smaller outlets may run out. If you buy your Culture Pass after 17.30 on Culture Night, we recommend the 7-Eleven stores at Nørreport Station or the Central Station.

Plan your evening

It's hard to get to more than six places during Culture Night if you want to immerse yourself in the events, and we therefore recommend that you keep as much as possible to one area of the program. See the Culture Night areas.

It is at that you will find descriptions of all the events from September 14.

At you can also create a "My Culture Night" profile so you can plan your route through the many options. It allows you to save the events that interest you by clicking the "+ My Culture Night” and it makes it easy to find them again.

You may want to save the website as the home screen of your smartphone. This will make it easy to access and view your saved "+ My Culture Night" events. Also, the mobile website tells you your location, making it easier to use it to navigate your way to nearby events throughout the evening.

Also, check if there are any events that require registration. It is a shame to turn up, if there is no space. All registrations are for free and begin on September 30 at 12.00.


There are many people out and about on the streets of Copenhagen during Culture Night. You may want to consider taking a bike or walking from place to place.

But if you need to rest your legs or travel over long distances, the Culture Pass gives access to free transport in the zones 1-99 in the city area from 16.00 to 04.00. See map of where you can travel freely with your Culture Pass. We don't recommend bringing your bike on the S-trains on Culture Night.

Check amendments

Remember to check if any of your scheduled events have changed: See list here!

Patience is a virtue

There are many Culture Night guests in town, and several locations can be tightly packed - so please be patient and take your time.

If you are entering a place where there is a long queue, you may want to be informed about what is happening nearby. On nearby organizers can be seen on your smartphone. Click on “In the area” in the main menu. 

The Little Culture Night

The Little Culture Night for children will return on March 19, 2021.

Companion Pass for disabled

Culture Night issues Companion Passes for disabled to guests with a valid Companion Card. Applications must be made through no later than September 30, 2020 in order to leave time to generate an accompanying letter which is to be printed and brought to the library where the Culture Pass is purchased. The accompanying letter can only be exchanged for a Companion Pass in libraries in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg where there are outlets for Culture Night.

Have a great Culture Night!
