What you'll do
We will start the journey from the ferry terminal at The Royal Library taking the harbor ferry 991 to Teglholmen. Experiencing Copenhagen's harbor from the water is simply magical. I will highlight the various projects along the waterfront that are capturing the headlines along with some hidden gems. Arriving in South Harbor 25 minutes later, we will then embark on a walk around Teglholmen & Sluseholmen, where I will describe the neighborhood's DNA seen from the eyes of a local resident and a professional designer. We will end the trip at the popular Yum Café & Yoga Studio where I will provide further information about your stay in Copenhagen. The café is just a short walk from the ferry terminal on Teglholmen, where you can take the harbor ferry 992 back to central Copenhagen.
My name is Phillip, a British spatial designer living and working in Copenhagen. I have lived in Copenhagen's, Sluseholmen with my wife Jette, since 2006 and followed its development intensely. It's transformation never ceases to amaze me and I take great pleasure in sharing this unique part of Copenhagen with curious souls and travelers. Since graduating as a spatial designer at Denmarks Design School in 1994, I have closely followed the urban development of Copenhagen's waterfront and a long the way discovered some hidden gems, which I will point out on our tour.
Ferry ticket one way There are regular buses (34 & 14) and harbor ferries (992) back to the city center.
