Staying focused on Copenhagen by the water, going to the sauna or diving into a hottub can be wonderfully relaxing. The Danish capital has experienced a veritable boom within this field in recent years, including ice swimming which has become a huge favourite amongst the locals!

These are some favorite saunas and hottubs with access to the water:

La Banchina

La Banchina boasts one of the city’s best spots for sunbathing and jumping in the water from early spring to late autumn. The restaurant has its own little designated swimming zone, open all year round and buzzing with life during summer. Come winter and a wood-fired sauna gets you all set after a cold dip in the harbour.
