Stay in Copenhagen
If you stay at Copenhagen Strand in Havnegade, you will not only be on Gammelholm, but also in the prime location of a Copenhagen district that tells century-old stories. At first, Gammelholm was the hub for the Danish navy, but when the entire naval station was finally moved to Nyhavn around 1860, the area began to flourish as a residential neighbourhood. Local streets and close-by multi-storey properties inspired by the Parisian building style took shape over the years and eventually marked Gammelholm as one of Copenhagen’s most fashionable neighbourhoods. This was particularly true of the buildings in Havnegade, where the facades still make a good first impression on passers-by.
As a guest, you can watch harbour life from the opposite side of the building’s facade and enjoy the view of the sparkling reflections in the water and the well-preserved warehouses on the other side of the canal. You are also within walking distance of the life that makes the neighbourhood a cultural place for both Danish and foreign guests, including Kongens Nytorv, the iconic Nyhavn and Skuespilhuset (the Royal Playhouse), which resembles a great glass cube and is reflected on Copenhagen’s harbour surface. This part of Copenhagen is also brimming with many lively restaurants, cafés and bars, which help to breathe life into the numerous city experiences waiting to be discovered – or rediscovered.
