Why go now
Ørestad is flourishing, with bars, cafés, restaurants, and exhibition spaces opening almost daily. It’s also tailor-made for sustainable tourism. As an unheralded, off-the-beaten-track for most visitors to Copenhagen, Ørestad should appeal to those who want to make broader use of – and have a positive impact on – the Danish capital.
Ørestad also boasts an abundance of nature. It’s situated alongside a 3,500-hectare nature reserve that includes a savannah, dense woods and salt marshes. Here, visitors can enjoy outdoor activities such as biking and birdwatching, and even spend the night under the stars in a tent or forest shelter.
