As has happened with so many cities where once-bustling harbors have seen their business dwindle over the decades, Copenhagen’s harbor has been transformed. Once a place where dock-workers came to labor, it’s now an area where locals come for leisure. The water is clean enough for swimming and all summer thousands of people visit Islands Brygge to take a dip or a dive in the harbor baths designed by star architect Bjarke Ingels. Other highlights include the Circle Bridge (Cirkelbroen) designed by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. Linking all the waterside attractions together is the Harbor Circle, a 13 kilometer (eight-mile) cycling/running/walking route.
