Copenhagen Harbour

Copenhagen Harbour includes both Nordhavnen - North Harbour, Sydhavnen - South Harbour, and Inderhavnen - Inner Harbour.

At the port areas, you will find everything from yachts to harbour baths to top attractions, and year round the areas host various events.


Nordhavn is situated close to Østerbro. The harbour is Europe's largest urban development project where a whole new city area is being developed.

Today Nordhavnen offers many diverse experiences. For example there is the old fishing port, where you can be lucky to buy freshly caught fish early in the morning. Bring cash.

Docken is an old storage hall, but today it is used to host a cafe, concerts, theatrical performances, parties and much more.

Svanemøllen Marina  is Denmark's largest marina and also home to Cafe Sundet, where you can enjoy good food and a great view of Øresund.

DFDS Terminal is also located in Nordhavnen. This is where the cruises to Oslo begin and end, as well as other larger cruises.


Inderhavn or Inner Harbour - as it translates - extends from Nordre Toldbod to Langebro. Try Seaside Toldboden. As the name suggests, Inderhavn is the most central part of Copenhagen Harbour. This is where the canal tours sail, and where you will find famous attractions such as The Little Mermaid, Amalienborg and Gefionspringvandet.

Inderhavn also includes Nyhavn, an area famous and infamous for its many pubs. The Royal Opera, The Royal Danish Playhouse and the Royal Libray - The Black Diamond - also resides in the area.


Sydhavnen - or South Habour - is the southernmost part of the waterfront and an area which has gotten a significant boost in the past years. 

The Islands Brygge harbour bath is located just south of Langebro and is therefore part of Sydhavnen. Every Summer a large number of water-loving locals and tourists enjoy a swim in the clean harbour bath. In 2011 the area got another harbour bath when Koralbadet opened. 

Shopping Centre Fisketorvet is also located in Sydhavnen, as well as Sluseholmen and the allotment area Nokken.
