Explore Østerbro, the healthy city
A healthy city is a city where its inhabitants can thrive, live in good conditions and in harmony with nature. In Østerbro we can find both historical and recent projects formulating an answer to "The healthy city".
Østerbro is the first "Climate quarter" in Copenhagen, creating green spaces which help coping with large volumes of water and benefit the local residents. Well-being is also created by the shaping of a community, translated into different housing typologies. We will pass by Brumleby, a row house area and Charlottehaven and Øbro, rethinking of the classic Copenhagen perimeter block.

Explore CO2 Neutral Nordhavn
Nordhavn is being developed into a sustainable neighbourhood of the future, in order to support Copenhagen’s aim of becoming CO2-neutral in 2025. Explore with us how sustainable living is made possible!
The backbone for Nordhavns sustainable development is the metro line, linking Nordhavn station to the other districts. This establishes a “5 minute city”, where every inhabitant is within walking distance from public transport. The industrial harbour history offers an inspiring basis for the new architecture. Old industrial buildings are renovated and offer a historical reference for new structures.
Explore Future living in Ørestad
Some of the most interesting new developments in Copenhagen can be found on Amager, where the Ørestad district was constructed on condemned ground. Join us on a tour to discover different architects' answer to future living.
Ørestad is primarily established as an international business district, which has excellent opportunities for living, learning and enjoying culture and nature. The district is renowned for its room for experiment, offering architects the opportunity to realize bold projects with innovative concepts. In this strong frame of infrastructure, water elements and green areas, new communities are being established and a unique identity is being shaped.

Explore the Harbor revitalisation
The high-end architectural projects at the harbor are eminent examples of the transformation of Copenhagen into one of the best cities in the world. We circle the harbor and tell you the story of how the Copenhagen we know now came to be.
The harbor makes Copenhagen into a very attractive city to live in. Its development in the last decades has been overwhelming. The water has been made more accessible by creating new blue public space, where there is room for living, culture and recreation. This went hand in hand with the creation of new bridges, each one with its own design and way of opening.
Explore co-creation on Nørrebro
On this bicycle tour, we explore what makes Nørrebro something very special. The district is considered both ugly and desirable at the same time, which helps to provide a special atmosphere and dynamism.
On this tour we come through a string of pearls of social and green public parks and squares, which help to bind Copenhagen's most densely populated neighborhoods together in a strong network of identity, belonging and quality of life.
Explore contrasts on Nordvest
Join the bike ride in Copenhagen's Northwest district, a raw and industrial district that has not yet been explored by most but with lots of charm and potential for development.
Nordvest is home to an immigrant population that is more than twice as large as the concentration of inner Copenhagen and the multiethnic diversity has helped to change the vision for land renewal strategies to now build on citizen-driven development with respect for Nordvest's inherent culture, history and architecture.
Carlsberg is a great example of a transformation of an industrial city, into a thriving new neighbourhood with high quality urban spaces framed by history and architectural heritage of the old brewery.
The Danish design studio Entasis, has won the largest international architecture award for the world's best master plan in the development of Carlsberg Byen from old brewery site to Copenhagen district. The master plan and all urban spaces are intended as a vibrant dense city with a maximized building percentage.
Explore the transformation of Jernbanebyen
Jernbanebyen is a facinating case study of a transformation of a semi-private neighbourhood built for rail related activities, into a thriving new neighbourhood with focus on creative production and carefree green urban spaces.
