Copenhagen’s best new architecture: Nordhavn

Join Danish Architecture Center and explore Nordhavn, a local neighborhood in the northern part of the Port of Copenhagen.

In Nordhavn you will find sustainable and innovative solutions like beautiful transformations, harbour baths, and a prizewinning rooftop playground. Join the tour around this newest expansion of Copenhagen.

Not many years ago, this part of the Port of Copenhagen was workers in blue overalls, dirty machinery, and the clamour and clatter of industry. Today, you discover a harbour with recreation, housing, and cultural institutions – often beautifully designed following sustainable guidelines. The Nordhavn district has been enriched with many prizewinning buildings, transformations of industrial silos, an expanded Metro line, and well-preserved traces of the historical harbour industry. 

The tour begins at DAC in BLOX. From here you walk together to the nearest Metro station (M4) and start the walking tour from the Nordhavn Station area. Highlights of the tour include: the masterplan of Nordhavn (Cobe, 2008), Frihavns Tower (Praksis, 2017), Lüders parking garage (JAJA Architects, 2016), Nordøen (Tredje Natur, Vilhelm Lauritzen, 2024), The Silo (Cobe, 2017), BIGs HQ (BIG, 2023) and much more.
