Copenhagen to get its own campsite

After years of having to use inadequate sites, tourists can look forward to a modern site with easy access to the city centre

Copenhagen will get a new campsite in the next one to two years, Jyllands-Posten reports.

Located in the green surroundings of Amager Fælled and just 10 minutes from the city centre by Metro, the site will provide modern facilities and parking space for about 100 caravans, 20 cottages and an area for tents.

Sensitive to the surroundings
The campsite will be run by one of the country's most experienced companies, Dancamps, which already owns five other sites across the country.

Dancamps Copenhagen, as the new camp will be called, will be designed to fit into the surrounding nature, using mostly gravel and grass.

Easy access, modern facilities
It will be located next to the Danhostel Amager and across from the Bella Center, thus providing easy access to public transport, cyclists and drivers. 

The site's facilities will include a playground, outdoor fitness area, water-fountains and kiosk.

Filling the camping 'hole'
The capital has long lacked a modern camping space near the city.

For many years, tourists have been using a campsite at Bellahøj that is only open part of the year and does not offer facilities expected at a modern city campsite. 

The nearest campsites currently lie in Dragør, Charlottenlund and Rødovre.
