I tell you about the history of Ørestad and the latest plans for the so called Arena District, where Royal Arena - a house of big music- and sportsevent are located.

See “The Copenhagen Manhattan” namely Ørestad City, where new impressive architecture is skyrocketing everyday. On the Ørestad City Tour you get to see the urban development at close range. More and more families choose Ørestad City, due to the modern homes and the large green areas that encourages outdoor activity. For example, you can have your very own urban garden - namely the 'underground gardens' just below the Metro high line. Also large business such as Ramböll chooses Ørestad as the city has a strategic location to Copenhagen airport and is a traffic hub, where you can quickly get from A to B. On the Ørestad City Tour we take a look at Ramböll Headquarter, the brand new School, the modern Ørestad library and the most sought college in Copenhagen namely Ørestad College by the architects 3XN. On the tour we also test the district's newest urban spaces, namely " the islands" located in the canal along Ørestad Boulevard. The islands form urban spaces that might encourage you to play or to take a midday break while enjoying a coffee. The tour also goes to Bjarke Ingels' (BIG) award winning building “The Mountain”. We pass the City Park to the design hotel Bella Sky Comwell.
