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.
The Århusgade district
The Århusgade district forms the heart of Nordhavn. Let yourself get lost in the narrow streets and admire the combination of old and new buildings in perfect symbiotic with each other. Feel the buzzing vibe around Göteborg Plads, the district's active central square that leads down to Sandkaj Brygge; Nordhavn's 400 metre long promenade right next to the water.

Combine architecture with great coffee, great food and great views.
The food says a lot about a neighbourhood. And Nordhavn is no exception. The cafés match Nordhavn's killer, chic Scandinavian aesthetic, and here you can experience world-class coffee, dinner in the sky or a crossaint so good it makes the angels sing.

All roads (and transportation services) lead to Nordhavn
