Part of the Harbour of Copenhagen

Expert Pick Off The Beaten Path Must See

Copenhagen, 2100


Frihavnen forms the outer part of the Copenhagen Harbour. Way back, the biggest ships docked in at Frihavnen before setting out on long voyages to Port Said and the East. After having finished the day's work, men living in Copenhagen went to Frihavnen on their bikes in order to take part in the adventure, maybe catch a hawser and tie it to a bollard. Today Frihavnen has become a fashionable area, with cafés and expensive shops. Now it is mostly cruisers and a few war ships that dock at Frihavnen.
