On Friday 12 October 2012 more than 250 museums, galleries, political institutions and other venues all over Copenhagen and Frederiksberg will open their doors to expose the hidden sides of the city’s cultural landscape.

Imagination creates Culture Night
“Culture Night has a unique ability to make the big official cultural institutions as well as the underground open their doors at the same time,” says project manager Marie Myschetzky from Culture Night.
She adds: “The programme has no theme but grows in all directions enabled by the sheer force and imagination of the participants.”

Select Events in Frederiksberg
Some of the potentially most popular events in our local ‘hood, Frederiksberg, are bound to be the pop-poetic concert by Mouritz/Hørslev Duo in collaboration with indie veteran, Nikolaj Nørlund, at atmospheric Møstings Hus, the chance to sneak a peek into the HQ of the Freemasons at Sct. Andreas Ordenen, or joining Mayor Jørgen Glenthøj as he guides an intimate group behind the scenes at Frederiksberg Town Hall.

Tickets and More Information
If you buy a ‘KulturKit’ (Culture Night Pass) for DKK 90 (approximately 12 Euros) you get free admission to all events as well as free access to public transportation from 5 pm to 5 am.
