Holmen - Former Naval Area with a New Life

The Danish fleet had its place at Holmen, where military ships were build and equipped in the time from 1690 to modern times. In these years the last parts of the Marine are moved to other places. The old buildings are transformed to house business, architects or simply apartments.

The area is filled with stories from dramatic times, for example from the time where the British stole the fleet in 1807 and the German occupation during WW2 where the Danish fleet sunk their own ships.

It’s possible to go to Holmen on foot from Ny Havn harbour cross one of the new bridges. It’s also possible to go by the harbour-boats.
