Copenhagen has garnered loads of international attention for its waterfront development in recent years.
The Danish capital has ample areas to relax in emerging areas like Nordhavn, Sydhavn and Refshaleøen – in 2018, the city was named the best city in the world for swimming.
People in Copenhagen flock to the waterfront areas in droves, particularly in hot weather, to barbeque, have a drink or cool off in the water.
And to party. A lot, apparently.
Done with dialogue
Late night noise complaints have become such an issue now that the police have decided to start fining culprits and confiscating music players.
“We’ve reached a point when we have to admit that our dialogue-based approach hasn’t made an impact,” Peter Dahl, a spokesperson for Copenhagen Police, told DR Nyheder.
“We still see a lot of particularly young people enter public spaces and play soundboxes and party it up.”
The police said that the fines would be in the amount of 1,500 kroner.
