The harbour festival, Kulturhavn Festival

For three days in August, Copenhagen's annual harbour festival, Kulturhavn Festival ignites the harbour with an abundance of free events, activities and free transportation on the water.

Cultural Harbour takes place in and around Copenhagen Harbour. The festival offers three days of music, theatre, artistry, dance and a variety of sports events in the harbour as well as on the waterfront.

The festival consists of sports activities, swimming and diving competitions, kayak and rowing races, music, games and lots more - all arranged by some 100 local organisations and associations who use the festival to display their activites and engage with locals and visitors. 

All is free of charge and with the special Kulturhavn Festival shuttle boats and Movia waterbuses it's even free and super easy to get around the harbour area during the festival.
