Discover enticing Islands Brygge
The recently redeveloped Islands Brygge, which translates into “Iceland’s Quay”, area of Copenhagen is a fascinating blend of both old and new. Once a long neglected industrial district, it has been transformed into one of the most fashionable areas of the city, with high-end apartments, office buildings, shops and attractions.
Relax by the water at HavneparkenIslands Brygge is a very popular place, especially on warm days, as there is plenty to see and do. One of the area’s main attractions is Havneparken, a vast public park right by the water’s edge. This old docking area has become an upper class playground boasting a number of attractions, including the Islands Brygge Culture House, Kulturhuset, and a unique bandstand created from the hull of a ship.
The Culture House plays host to approximately 350 events each year, ranging from circuses and concerts to hypnotist shows and theater. Head to this artsy area and enjoy a show, grab a delicious snack at their café, or find some treasures at their flea markets.
Get your toes wetAnother people-pleaser in Islands Brygge is the Harbor Bath, where you can take a dip and enjoy the water. This open-air swimming venue has five swimming pools, including two designated children’s pools, making it the ideal place to cool down on a hot summer’s day. When open, the waters are supervised by lifeguards, meaning you can bring the whole family and relax on the grassed area as the children swim. If you don’t fancy diving in, you can take a stroll along the waterfront promenade or enjoy a picnic on the pristine lawns in front of the Harbor Bath.
Islands Brygge is situated just a few minutes’ walk from our Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Copenhagen. This chic property is the perfect option for anyone looking for a hotel within easy reach of all this enticing neighborhood has to offer.
