Paddling in Copenhagen Harbour
Copenhagen is one of the only cities in Europe where the harbour water is clean enough to swim in. The city has built three popular harbour baths - a new type of city-beach for people to swim, sunbathe, and cool off on hot summer days.
Today the water in the Port of Copenhagen is just as clean as the water in the Sound, out- side the port. Fish, web-footed birds and benthic vegetation have returned, and the people of Copenhagen have taken over the port for bathing, yachting, limited sports fishing, cafés and parks.
