On Friday, October 14, Copenhagen will stage its annual; ‘Kulturnatten’ or Night of Culture; a city-wide event which has grown rapidly in stature since it was first held in 1993.

This year, Copenhagen will remain open throughout the night, with as many as 100,000 people expected to visit the city and attend hundreds of cultural events.

From 6pm until at least midnight, museums, libraries, educational establishments, theatres, musical venues, churches and  art and culture  organisations will open their doors to the public.

Overall, more than 700 events will be held across the city during the night.
