The harbour park at Islands Brygge is not just about sun and swimming …. far from it.
For the recent Harbour Festival there were bands and groups performing and Kulturhuset, about half way down the park, has a full program of events through the year including jazz concerts, dance sessions, hosting a Sunday flea market.
Over the summer Metropolis staged several events here including their exhibition of photographs - 100% Foreign - about immigration to the city - with the personal stories of 100 refugees who have arrived in Copenhagen and made their homes here since 1956.
Also, close to Kulturhuset, is Bryggens Book Cupboard … a curious and amazing example of what happens when you give citizens outdoor space they can use for anything. They use it for anything … including a free book lending service.
