Area

Refshaleøen Island

Copenhagen’s new cultural district.

Refshaleøen Island is beautifully situated overlooking the water opposite Langelinie five kilometres from central Copenhagen — within easy reach by bike, boat, or bus. This is a different side of Copenhagen than the one you are likely to experience in the city center, which makes Refshaleøen a unique area giving both Copenhageners and tourists outdoor experiences and an opportunity to wind down.

Refshaleøen is a former industrial area which, from 1872 to 1996, was home to the pioneering shipyard Burmeister & Wain, popularly known as B&W. In its heyday, B&W was Denmark’s biggest workplace and, today, Refshaleøen is considered an icon in Danish industrial history. Formerly closed to the public, the island is now opening up with a wealth of new interesting cultural experiences.

Situated centrally at Refshaleøen in B&W’s iconic welding hall, CC is an international power hub in Copenhagen’s new cultural district. The special quality of this area continues to be defined by its industrial history: the area is raw and green with commanding views across Copenhagen Harbour. The district is a mix of first-class gourmet restaurants and small entrepreneurial initiatives; you can go for a dip in the sea, for a sauna, enjoy a glass of wine, and eat grilled food, buy quality bread and visit Copenhagen’s most popular food market with stalls from across the world and lounge areas by the water’s edge. Not forgetting the climbing, skating,and skiing activities, the flea market, and the theatre and music festivals, which are just some of the many activities this area has to offer.
