Copenhagen is considered to be the design capital of the world, but the city vibrates with many art-related events and places as well. From well-established museums and festivals to pop up cultural spaces, we keep on getting entertained and filled with wonders.

We browsed through some of the upcoming or ending events of the city and made a list just for you. Check it out!

Catch me before it’s too late …

CPH PIX Festival

Going on since September the 9th, Cph PIX is the biggest film festival of Denmark. They have a 14 days program starring more than 150 recent films from all around the world. They are trying to add an extra layer to the festival by presenting artists talks, special events, concerts, seminars and theatrical performances. Bringing up mainstreams as well as niche movies, their aim is to open the movie scene in Copenhagen. 

The festival will end the 11th of October. So grab your tickets and go explore the world’s movie scene while you still can!

Postbox

Postbox is a secret cultural gem situated next to the Central Station. This urban oasis is located in what used to be an old, abandoned post office car park. 

The open space is now filled up with containers that are well roomed with art, design and culture. Behind this project sits DesignerSpace, a physical as well as online platform that already hosted several markets to promote newly established and upcoming designers, artists and creative entrepreneurs in Copenhagen.

The space opened the 6th of May and held many different events throughout the summer. The peak point is now over but nonetheless the space is still worth the detour. You can still browse through unique pop-up designer shops and showrooms with good food, coffee and rosé on the side!

The area will become a building site from 2018 so make sure to stop by before the 22nd of October, when Postbox will reach its end :).
