About The Culture Yard / Kulturværftet
The Culture Yard is a multi-cultural house situated in Elsinore – a historic town at the tip of North Zealand overlooking the strait between Denmark and Sweden. Built into the town’s old shipyard, The Culture Yard unfolds its culture program in and around the historic buildings, wrapped in modern architecture and facilities.
The Culture Yard gives you every opportunity to explore the vibrant culture life of Elsinore. More than 1000 events and activities take place each year on our stages, festivals, conference- and event facilities, exhibition rooms and in our organic cafés.
You can also visit the shipyard museum, which tells the compelling story of how Elsinore’s old shipyard propelled the city into the industrial age, with great prosperity.
When you visit The Culture Yard, you are not likely to find yourself alone. 700.000 annual visitors explore our award-winning multimedia-library, attend our numerous cultural activities or enjoy their lunch at our café, Spisehuset, with a great view to the UNESCO site Kronborg – Hamlet’s Castle.
