Copenhagen’s harbour is in the midst of a transformation from an industrial port and traffic junction to being the cultural and social centre of the city. The superdesigny Harbour Bath has been instrumental in this evolution. The Harbour Bath offers an urban harbour landscape with dry-docks, piers, boat ramps, cliffs, playgrounds and pontoons. As a terraced landscape, the Harbour Bath completes the transition from land to water, making it possible for the citizens of Copenhagen to go for a swim in the middle of the city. Go Denmark!
wow that is quite interesting. The picture looks pretty cool and I would love to see it in person. Thanks for the post

So that people have a frame of reference, that’s a *very* old photo – at least 4 years old, possibly older. I know this because I live in the completed apartments that lie in the space between the dark building in the background and the older building near the Harbour Bath.
Also keep in mind that the text accompanying the photo is very optimistic and somewhat misleading.
Aside from the occasional Jazz concert, open-air movie, or traveling circus that appears on the grassy area near the Bath, it is far from becoming the ‘cultural center’ of Copenhagen.
And there are no ‘dry-docks’, ‘boat ramps’, or ‘cliffs’ (not unless you count the sheer face of cement at the waters edge) anywhere near the Bath.
But it is a very nice place to spend a sunny afternoon!

It’s brilliant. See it working during the COP 15, when people went swimming in the 6C cold water. Se it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ9-t7P1jCc

Sometimes, people may find themselves sharing more “tweets” than consumers should
become, and losing occasion they must be using to focus on other tasks.
While it can not always be possible because of your stressful schedule, working out after a meal when you can will
help with your own weight loss. Well, you’re as part of the right place to get a quick overview of
this very good connection tool, and observe easy
it is to set increase an account.
