When Copenhageners want to relax, they go to Amager Strand (‘Amager Beach‘), a very picturesque stretch of coast that was widened with sand excavated during the construction of the famous Øresund Bridge. So if you find yourself in the city with some hours to spare, consider heading over there and getting some fresh ocean air. Amager Strand is all about relaxing and exercising outdoors: enjoy the lagoon in the centre of the area or work out in the kayaking facilities and 1000-metre swimming lanes. There are public showers and a lovely view across to Sweden on the other side of the bridge.
