Why locals love it

Water quality is great, it's incredibly cool and refreshing to jump in on a warm day in the very central city. The harbour front in general is the place to watch Copenhageners at play, especially during the summer.

Why you should visit it

Bring swim suites, a few drinks and a sandwich, and you're good for an entire afternoon looking at people walking/sailing/swimming/kayaking/showing off their tattoos.

Special tip

For families it's nice to know there are kids basins.
In winter there are winter swimming for members. It's a nice thing to look at anyway :)
