5 places to cool down during summer in CPH

Most of you have probably already seen some nice beaches while staying here. Some of you might even have seen the baths in the harbors of Copenhagen. The water is clean (so clean that seals appearantly are coming to stay, so watch out for those), the placement is practical and mostly it is just fun to try and go there to cool down (heat wave coming later this week).

There are 5 of them in Copenhagen:

Vesterbro (Copacabana); 
Yeah, the name is probably a far stretch, but nonetheless.. There are 3 pools and a tower to jump from (1, 2 and 3 meters). There is also a tiny stretch of sand where you can play beachvolley! And it's free!

Webpage; Copencabana
Address: Kalvebod Brygge 55, København VOpening times: June 15th to August 31st,  kl. 11-19

Islands Brygge (Havnebadet Islands Brygge):
Probably the most central of the baths.  Features a 75m pool and two small pools for children. The tower of this bath is it's landmark. It is supposed to resemble a ship and you can jump from 1, 3 and 5 meters. No dressing rooms, but public toilets 100 meters down the street. Close to beer and ice cream as well!

Amager (Helgoland):

Helgoland as it is today is not the original one (which was torn down when they made the beach at Amager). There is a common bath, one for the women and one for the men and stairs to Øresund (yeah, the ocean!). In the gender specified areas, you might see naked people,

- just so you are warned!

Amager Helgoland
Address: Amager Strandpark, KBH S
Opening times: June 23rd to August 31st, 10-18.

Østerbro (Svanemøllestranden):
Amager is a bit far from DTU, so if you want something a bit closer, there is Svanemøllestranden! The artificial beach is very popular and is very close to the real deal.

Webpage: Svanemøllestranden
Address: Strandpromenaden, KBH Ø
Opening times: All year 24-7.

Sydhavnen (Koralbadet):

The newest of the baths. Placed at Sluseholmen in Sydhavnen, close to much of the "new" C

3 pools; a playpool for children and a small pool and a large pool (25 m). Also with a tower for jumping!


Address: Teglholmshavnen, KBH SV

Opening times: June 15th to August 31st, 11-19.

(Sorry for the messy look of this post - I have no idea what went wrong o_o)
