A cultural platform and vertical festival ground

Huset is a cultural platform where volunteers and alternative cultural environments create events and artistic projects. Together with different cultural partners Huset presents different cultural experiences from concerts to theater and performances, talks, underground cult movie screenings, food culture and cross-artistic projects.

Located in an old four-story warehouse Huset is best described as a vertical festival ground, offering events daily from Tuesday to Saturday throughout the high seasons, besides having a board gaming café, a restaurant and a intimate and atmospheric cult cinema.

Huset is Denmark's first culture house and has existed since 1970. Born out of a call for more democratic reforms. Since then, Huset has been a platform for prominent cultural personalities and important political currents, from early feministic activists to the the punk rock movement, 90ties grunge and today's nerdy niche culture and sustainable activists.

The halls are always buzzing with life and here, everyone can chip in and help ensure the broad variety of events and happenings, which has been the hallmark of Huset for more than 50 years. The spirit lingers to this day in the core values of community, volunteering, and co-creation.
