Ørestad is a neighbourhood on the island of Amager, and saw its first residential building erected in 2004. Today Ørestad is still finding its final form with new architecture and recreational offerings popping up. As a brand new neighbourhood, it's built up around excellent infrastructure, making it possible to reach the city center in 7 minutes, and the airport in 6. But more importantly, its location on the edge of a big nature reserve is pretty unique for a big city neighbourhood.
If you are interested in new architecture check out the award-winning residential buildings VM Mountain and 8House designed by architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG). And be sure to visit the DR Concert Hall by architect Jean Nouvel. Also, check out our guide to the adjacent area of coastal East Amager.
