Red Bull Cliff diving
June 20, 14:00-16:00; Copenhagen Opera House, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K

See 14 of the world’s best divers hurl themselves off the roof of the Copenhagen Opera House, rotating as they head towards the water 27 metres below them at speeds of up to 85 km/h.

The ten men and four women will travel nearly three times the distance Olympic highboard divers plunge and hit the water with an impact seven to nine times harder.

The dives only take around three seconds from start to finish so don’t blink or you’ll miss them.
