Visit Amager, the capital’s independent island

A visit to Amager reveals award-winning architecture, wild nature, wonderful beaches, a popular shopping centre and one of the biggest aquariums in the Nordic Region.

The island of Amager nestles in the Øresund just off the eastern shoreline of Copenhagen, and includes city centre areas and towns such as Dragør and Kastrup. A large part of Amager is reclaimed land, and it boasts sandy beaches, top shopping, scenic nature reserves, one of the biggest aquariums in this part of the world and renowned architecture.

Amager has an exciting if chequered past, and five bridges now link it to Copenhagen itself. The city centre areas are divided into Amager East and West, and the island has enjoyed a new surge of popularity thanks to recent construction projects. Start your tour of Amager in the greenness of Ørestad, home to award-winning architecture such as the 8TALLET, shaped in the form of a figure of eight and standing at the edge of Kalvebod Common’s nature reserve. You should also take in the innovative Tietgenkollegiet. Continue to Field’s, home to 140 shops, a cinema and a golf course – one of the biggest shopping centres in Scandinavia.

Set course for the 2,000 hectare nature reserve of Kalvebod Common, where cows, horses, sheep and deer graze contentedly. This protected area makes a fantastic contrast to the surrounding modern architecture and is particularly magical in the morning mist. Amager Strandpark is another lovely area where you can swim, water ski, windsurf and play volleyball – all just a 15-minute drive from the city centre.

You can’t come on holiday to Amager without seeing the National Aquarium Denmark, Den Blå Planet which covers 12,000 square metres. No fewer than 53 different aquariums, 450 species and 7 million litres of water mean that it’s no surprise that the “Blue Planet” is one of Denmark’s most popular attractions!

The Copenhagen Metro runs direct to Amager East and West, and both areas are also well served by buses. However, you could also opt for the transport choice of Copenhageners – a bicycle. The trip takes just half an hour from City Hall.

Discover a new side of the capital on the island of Amager, featuring unspoilt scenery, architecture and exciting attractions.
