Copenhagen Harbor

As has happened with so many cities where once-bustling waterfronts have seen their fishing business decline over the decades, Copenhagen’s harbor has been transformed. A place where fishermen used to come to work, it’s now an area where locals come for leisure. The water is clean enough for swimming, and all summer thousands of people visit the Islands Brygge area to take a dip or a dive in the harbor baths designed by star architect Bjarke Ingels. Another highlight is the Circle Bridge (Cirkelbroen), designed by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. Linking all the waterside attractions is the Harbor Circle, an eight-mile cycling/running/walking route.
