You know how people like to go to festivals and do normal things like eat fried food or ride a ferris wheel? Those people are nice, I guess, and I’ve even been one of them on various occasions. I can normal around town with the best of them. But Copenhagen Culture Night, or Kulturnatten, takes places on 10 October and isn’t really prime time to lower the freak flag. Let it fly, people! Here’s our list of the whackiest shit to do, no matter where you are in the city.
Be a Lifeguard for a Night, Østerbro
The title of this event makes me laugh. What a hilariously obscure thing to do for a night. Being a lifeguard is hard work and I’ve never really wanted to learn how to be one, but this is Culture Night! Time to take a walk on the wild side. Maybe they’ll teach you CPR and you’ll meet someone cute.
Midnight Bathing in Sjællandsgade Bad, Nørrebro
Ever felt like taking a bath at midnight in a public place? Me neither, but this actually sounds pretty fun. There’s steaming baths (a seriously luxury in Copenhagen), fresh fruit and candles. I bet it’ll smell like potpourri.
Human Towers, Nord Vest
This is what it sounds like. It is towers. Of humans. On top of each other. Go see it.

Drive a Mars Robot, Vesterbro
I’m gonna just nerd out on this one: DRIVING MARS ROBOTS!!! It’s a simulation, yes, but simulations don’t get much cooler than this.
A Chair Workshop, Indre By
This might be the most Danish thing to ever Danish. Not only are you going to learn about chairs at the Design Museum, you get to make a tiny replica with toothpicks or something. If you don’t find this appealing then I feel sorry for you and you are reading the wrong website.
A Look Behind the Scenes at the Ministry of Taxation, Indre By
Do I really need to explain this? It sounds totally boring, except that somehow since it’s part of Culture Night it sounds kind of amazing. The people at the Ministry of Taxation probably know how to get down. Expert tip: bring a flask.
Is there a totally ridiculous event going on in your neighborhood? Did we miss something too cool for school? Let us know about it in the comments!
