It has been along time coming. The jinxed Inner Harbor Bridge opened a couple of weeks ago in Copenhagen, not so much to a stirring fanfare more of a deep sigh of relief. The Inner Harbor Bridge, now connects central Copenhagen to Amager for pedestrians and cyclists and though the 3 year delay has been both frustrating and a embarrassment for the city’s municipality, the opening of the bridge provides Copenhagen’s visitors now with an unique opportunity to explore and complete the 13km. Harbor Circle. The recently opened route takes the visitor through an urban and waterfront landscape revealing some of Copenhagen’s most innovative and creative projects in recent years, such as The Circle Bridge and the ever popular residential area, Sluseholmen. The route is well sign posted and offers first-time visitors to Copenhagen an inspiring glimpse how the harbor area is developing new residential identities. With the final piece in jigsaw now in place, Copenhagen’s Inner Harbor Bridge and the Harbor Circle reinstated this nordic capital a bike lane and cycle infrastructure that ranks up there with the best.
