Find the gems in Copenhagen S

West Amager and Ørestad, also known as Copenhagen S, is built around nature, water and architecture. Since the development in Ørestad started in 1995 many families and students have moved into the many, architect-designed buildings. If you are interested in new architecture check out the award-winning residential buildings VM Mountain and 8Tallet designed by architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG). And be sure to visit the DR Concert Hall by architect Jean Nouvel which has a stunning interior. Closer to the city is the popular Islands Brygge with maritime activities.

We also recommend our area guides to Copenhagen city centre and East Amager.
