Restaurant noma in Copenhagen's Refshaleøen area

Holmen: The former naval area between Refshaleøen and Christianshavn

From naval area to a calm waterside oasis in the city, Holmen is home to the Opera, noma and a calming, secluded vibe.

Made up by a small series of islands, Holmen is tucked in between the neighbourhoods of Refshaleøen and Christianshavn which is also worth exploring while in the area.

Holmen is not exactly packed with attractions, but is more a small, local hub where locals enjoy themselves while jumping in the water by the Opera House. Partly residential and partly built on its naval history, Holmen is a place of its own.
