What's new in Copenhagen travel
The new luxury Hotel Ottilia, a new ski slope on a recycling plant... Copenhagen is paving the way in new design and sustainability.
A lot has happened in the old brewery area of Carlsberg in the last years. Another hotspot was added to the area’s reputation, when the architectural luxury hotel Hotel Ottilia opened. The hotel has its own rooftop restaurant and bar TRAMONTO, and it is the perfect spot for a sunset drink on a summer night.
Copenhagen’s power plant Copenhill is already up and running, and we cannot wait to put on our skis and slalom down the ski slope on the side of the plant. Copenhill was among Lonely Planet’s reasons for naming Copenhagen “Best in Travel”, and it sure is a major draw to Copenhagen.
Futuristic, unparalleled ski slope and recreational hill on top of a new resource handling centre.
Spectacular and innovative in the true sense of the words. That’s Amager Bakke / Copenhill – the artificial ski slope and recreational hiking area, built on top of the new waste management centre.
Not only is the architectural beacon visible from most of Copenhagen, a giant chimney way up on top will be blowing giant smoke rings. This sounds like something out of a sci-fi fantasy but is the reality at the power plant with the name ARC (Amager Ressource Center).
We love farmer's markets at home so why not visit a local Copenhagen market during your visit. Buy fresh produce such as berries from the Farm of Ideas, fresh local tastings from Mirabelle Restaurant, or oysters from Fiskerikaien when the Relæ Community brings together some of their producers and friends for a farmers market. From 11 am – 4 pm on Saturday's.
