What is the ugliest place in Copenhagen? Kalvebod Brygge answers a lot, but now Kalvebod Brygge is undergoing transformation. In the second row from the harbor quay, a violent development is taking place in these years, which may help to change the image of the maligned stretch.

Join us and see it with your own eyes and get the stories behind it.

Postbyen is being built along the tracks at Central Station, and will be connected to the existing Bymil, which stretches from Bernstorffsgade and on to the Tivoli Hotel. There will be a green raised stretch from the Tivoli Hotel and over to Dybbøls Bro, where we will have to get used to cycling to IKEA. After Dybbøl’s Bridge the Cactus Towers rises up, and from IKEA’s new rooftop terrace, we can look out over the Railway City​

The tour gives you an insight into a maligned area in Copenhagen, which in these years is being transformed and connected to the rest of the city.

Come along for the ride and be among the first to get to know the city’s new secret highline.
