Hundested Harbour named port of the year
Hundested Harbour in Halsnæs, northern Zealand, has been named Port of the Year 2013.
Representatives picked up the award at a ceremony at the recently-held Copenhagen Maritime Festival in central Copenhagen.
The president of the Danish Association of Pleasure Boats, whose 10,000 members representing 300 Danish ports decide the winner, praised the 152-year-old harbour.
"The port has evolved tremendously in recent years as both a commercial and transportation hub,” said Poul Erik Jakobsen.
“There is a mix of old and new. Today it stands Hundested as a modern marina with excellent services and a lot of business . "
Harbour master Søren Brink predicted a great summer in 2014.
“The mood at our forthcoming harbour festival in July could well turn out to be even more self-confident and optimistic,” he said.
