Area guide: Architectural Nordhavn

Nordhavn is the modern and innovative face of Copenhagen. Nordhavn has gone from a raw industrial port area to an attractive, independent neighbourhood with impressive, brand new Scandinavian architecture, and creative hub for design and architectural studios, all while retaining the charming atmosphere of living close to the water. And the best part? It's only a 15 min metro ride from City Centre.

Hotspot for new sustainable architecture

Nordhavn is among the largest and most ambitious urban development projects in Northern Europe when it comes to sustainability. As a result, Nordhavn has become nothing less than a hot-spot for modern architecture and urban planning solutions.

All roads (and transportation services) lead to Nordhavn

Nordhavn is practically the hub for all public transport in Copenhagen. Both the S-train and the Metro take you from Central Station to Nordhavn St. in less than 15 minutes. If you prefer to arrive in style, the Harbour Bus takes you directly to Orientkajen, where a beautiful route along the water is included in the ticket price.
