Six Quirky Events at Copenhagen Culture Night 2015

You can stay in next Friday and watch Netflix, we promise. But this Friday is Culture Night (Kulturnatten) in Copenhagen: the night when businesses and institutions all over the city open their doors to host informative, engaging and straight up weird events for the public.

Get out there and enjoy what this city has to offer!

List Marker: Number 1Tour a Historical Bathhouse from 1909

Every hour, on the hour, you take take a tour of this old-fashioned public bath house. In addition to learning about the building and usage, you’ll also get a chance to experience the beautiful acoustics with specially selected music. Public bath acoustics! There’s a first time for everything, guys.

List Marker: Number 2Test the Age of your Muscles

There’s no further elaboration in the program as to how, actually, these tests will be conducted. All the same, it sounds pretty intriguing. Will your muscles be carbon dated? Will you have to lift dumbbells? Who knows! Go see for yourself – you’re bound to learn something about the human body. This is at the Medicinsk Museion, the University of Copenhagen medical museum and one of the most interesting museums in Copenhagen.
