Still one of my favorite cities in the world, Copenhagen launches a new promotion for visitors looking for art, transportation and culture.
On 10 October 2008, a total of more than 200 museums, churches, exhibition halls, galleries, political institutions, and other venues all over the city will open their doors for Copenhagen’s Night of Culture, reflecting the city’s broad cultural landscape.
Kulturnatten, Thorvaldsens MuseumEnjoy a remarkable city walk in company with Bishop Absalon, Christian IV, Caroline Mathilde and Countess Danner. Walk about on your own inside Folketinget – the parliament building – and meet the politicians and the staff. The square behind the Round Tower is transformed into a playground for children of all ages. The art street Rørholmsgade is open and illuminated. Get a guided tour in the Sofie Bath erected in 1909 and listen to live classical music while your feet are dipped in water. Join a night fishing trip at Carl’s Bastion. Or visit the fine, rewarded, circular college Tietgenkollegiet in the new city area Ørestad North. Those are some of the many events offered this year during Copenhagen’s Night of Culture.
Reflection of Copenhagen’s cultural life
On one particular night – 10 October – museums, churches, exhibition halls, galleries, political institutions, and other venues all over the Danish capital will welcome visitors to discover the hidden sides of the city’s cultural landscape. The broad selection of more than 200 venues and more than 500 events is a reflection of Copenhagen’s cultural life.
– The whole city is an integral part of the Night of Culture, and the range of major and minor cultural institutions and venues – some are only open to the public on this particular night – mirrors how versatile Copenhagen culture is. We encourage all the cultural institutions and venues to show themselves in a new light. And it is a unique opportunity for Copenhageners as well as tourists to explore new and unknown sides of Copenhagen culture, says Project Manager Marie Myschetzky, Wonderful Copenhagen.
