Visiting Copenhagen, then take the time to visit the city’s canal-neighborhood, Sluseholmen, which continues to be an inspiration for urban planners and architects. Since 2006, this residential area of Copenhagen’s South Harbor, has blossomed from a group of hopeful pioneers into a diverse community. With its distinctive facades and maritime references Sluseholmen is naturally compared with the districts, Java and Borneo in Amsterdam, which is not surprising as it was the Dutch architect, Sjoerd Soeters responsible for the masterplan. Today, Sluseholmen is a popular residential neighborhood that is slowly, but surely establishing an urban identity that Copenhagen can be proud of.
