Open Air Bathing in Central Copenhagen - "Havnebad"
in Copenhagen Harbour - Summer and Winter
Since June 2002 the Copenhageners no longer
need to visit the beaches in the summer season outside of
the city to have a fresh swim in crystal clean blue
water - as the bathing water around the harbour
area has reached a quality equal to the bathing water
at the many blue flag beaches on the coastline of Copenhagen.
The harbour bathing facilities are for summer and winter bathers.
An advanced alarm system to ensure clean water conditions
and the establishment of large underground rainwater basins
to protect against contaminated wastewater to run into the
harbour area - together with effective environmental
investments has contributed to create large recreational
areas in and around the harbour area.
