Located on the former location of the Royal Navy Base, Holmen is a neighbourhood in Copenhagen that is surrounded by water. The naval base was moved to Gammelholm and soon many projects and ideas were suggested for this land. In the early 20th  century, the place was transformed to a district of Copenhagen with a melange of residential complexes, business area and educational institutes forming a strong threshold here.  

The area is popular for being home to the Central guardhouse, Masting Sheer and Plan Building and the ships like The Royal Yacht and the Georg Stage and the Museum ships (a collection of naval ships from the Cold War).

The famous Danish Design School, the Architecture School, the Rhythmic Music Conservatory and the Danish Film School are located here and form some of the most notable institutes in the country. The whole district supplements the city of Copenhagen and its deep roots that are a pleasure to explore!

Visit the neighbourhood to explore the old buildings and truly absorb yet another of  the city’s many highlights!
