  The old torpedo hall
by ValbyDK

Holmen is the common name for a row of islands (Christiansholm, Arsenaløen, Frederiksholm, Dokøen, Nyholm, and Margretheholm) in the harbour of Copenhagen. Holmen was from 1690 to 1993 the main base for the Danish Navy, but was in 1996 opened to the public.

Today, Holmen is a completely changed area, where many of the old buildings have been converted into condos. For example is an old torpedo hall now a condo complex with the original water basin as their courtyard. I think this is a nice place to take a walk, and get away from the noise and stress in other parts of Copenhagen.

On Holmen you’ll also find the Opera House, the old mast crane, Peder Skram and more.
