Description

Spectacular and innovative in the true sense of the words. That’s Amager Bakke / Copenhill – the artificial ski slope and recreational hiking area that opened in October 2019, built on top of the new waste management centre.

You can bring out your ski and snowboard and head down the slopes at Copenhill. You can bring your own equipment, or you can rent some from the local shop Steep and Deep where the experts will be ready to help you. Just like at more traditional ski sport destinations, you can of course finish your day on the slopes with afterski at Copenhill’s very own café and afterski bar.

If you are not much of a skier, you can also try the hiking trail that goes all the way along Copenhill’s roof. At Copenhill, you will also find the world’s highest climbing wall of 85 meters, where certified climbers can test their skills.

Combined, the playful design and the ski slope on top will be an all new way to think urban resource handling and build waste-to-energy plants that are actually welcomed by the inhabitants.

ARC is one of the steps towards Copenhagen’s goal of becoming the world’s first carbon neutral capital.
