Boat tour

Discover Copenhagen’s beautiful harbor transformation on the city’s only architecture cruise

To glide along the harbor today, it’s hard to comprehend that just a few decades ago, Copenhagen’s waterway was choking with industrial sites. Where cargo ships, warehouses, and polluted water could once be found – today the harbor has been transformed with swimmers, pleasure boats, and innovative sustainable architecture.

In addition to BLOX, home of the Danish Architecture Center (OMA, 2018), learn about COBE architects’ award-winning housing complex, Krøyers Plads (2015), which reinvents the 300-year old warehouses along the harbor using sustainable materials. Along the way we’ll see the Royal Opera House (Henning Larsen, 2005) and Amager Bakke (BIG, 2018) Copenhagen’s innovative waste to power generation plant which includes a sloped roof – that creatively doubles as the city’s ski slope. Other highlights in Nordhavn (North Harbor) include The Silo, COBE architect’s masterful transformation of a gigantic grain silo into stylish apartments, recently honored as the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s Best European Building.
