With an industrial structure complemented by a Modernist renovation, this minimalist, bright loft is the ultimate choice for those looking to explore the city after dark.

This historic home was built in the 19th century to provide housing for local workers at the shipyards, and guests get a rare opportunity to experience a true example of Copenhagen family life here, as these properties are usually handed down through families and rarely come onto the housing market. With beautiful decor consisting of light pink, white and red walls, the loft has two bedrooms, making it great for a young family. Located close to central Copenhagen near the chic neighbourhood of Nørrebro and family-friendly Østerbro, the apartment is surrounded by many shops, restaurants, cafés and galleries.

A mere 15-minute walk away is Nyhavn, the popular harbour known for its colourful buildings and bustling atmosphere.
What is Copenhagen if not one large harbour? Embracing the history of the city as a leading trade port and a town built on the Baltic Coast, this open-plan canalside apartment has ‘family holiday’ written all over it. Bunk beds are placed in the second room, making it ideal for children looking to experience the beauty of waterside living. Completely renovated, the flat’s interior includes eclectic artworks and floor-to-ceiling windows.
