Swimming pools and outdoor swimming  

Despite its modest size, Denmark has one of Europe’s longest coastlines, 8.750 km, and Danes are never more than 52 km away from the coast. You have free access to beaches and coastlines, even if they are privately owned. Surrounded by sea, Denmark is truly a country for water enthusiasts as swimming is part of everyday life here all year round. Copenhagen has 9 indoor public swimming pools, each with its own distinct profile. The Copenhagen Harbour buzzes with life and activities. Jump in one of the public harbour baths or swimming zones in the heart of the city. It´s safe, clean, and fun - or soak up the sun, have a barbecue and play ball at the grassy lawns. All 4 harbour baths and 6 swimming zones are free to use. Close by you find a semi-wild getaway from the city, Amager Beach Park, for open water swimming, relaxing sand dunes and kids-friendly lagoons. Going beyond the city limits, you can choose between many beautiful beaches in North Zealand and south of the city.

Day trips

Visit Sweden: Malmø in Sweden is just 39 minutes of train ride away from Copenhagen Central Station. The crossing over Øresund is part of the experience. From the bridge, you have a spectacular view of the two cities, Copenhagen and Malmö and the sparkling sea. The bridge has gained international fame from its role in the Nordic Noir TV crime series The Bridge. And there is a lot to see on the other side.
