About Amager, Copenhagen

Amager ([ˈɑmɑːˀ] or, especially among older speakers, [ˈɑmæɪ̯ˀɐ]) is a Danish island in the Øresund. The Danish capital, Copenhagen, is partly situated on Amager, which is connected to the much larger island of Zealand by five bridges. Amager also has a connection across the Øresund to Sweden, the Øresund Bridge. Its western part begins with a tunnel from Amager to another Danish island, Peberholm. Copenhagen Airport is located on the island, around 7 km (4 mi) from Copenhagen city centre. Amager is the largest island in the Øresund, and the only one with a large population. As of 2016, 192,709 people live on the island, including its northern tip, Christianshavn. The northern part is included in the Copenhagen municipality. The middle part comprises Tårnby municipality, and Dragør municipality is located on the southeast part of the island. Most of the western part is land that was reclaimed from the sea from the 1930s-1950s. This enlargement, from the shallow sound towards Zealand, is known as Kalveboderne. The enlargement has never been built-up and its soil isn't suitable for agricultural use. However the area between Dragør town and the airport is cultivated land of high quality. Amager has in the past been referred to as the "kitchen of Copenhagen". At the border of the enlargement there is an old beech forest, Kongelunden (The King's Grove).

  • Amager er et rigtig dejligt sted. Stranden er helt i top, og Lufthavnen ligger der også, så det er nemt. Man komme hurtigt ind til byen med metro, men man kan også bare komme rundt på Amager, nemt med Metro og Bus :)

  • Amager er bare skøn... Med indkøbsgade ,strand,fælled og masser af musik og natteliv.

  • En ø, der har stort set alt: Christiania, Kbh Lufthavn, Amager Strand og Amagerfælled. For bare at nævne de vigtigste.. Blandt beboerne går Amager under navnet Øen eller Ønske-øen
