Nordhavnen, or Nordhavn, is a harbour area at the coast of Øresund founded at the end of the 19th century in Copenhagen, Denmark. It covers an area of more than 2 million m².

Today, most of Copenhagen Harbours traditional activities are situated in Nordhavn, including ferry berths, a container terminal, marina, and industrial companies.

The S-train station Nordhavn station is located at Nordhavnen close to the city district Østerbro.

Future plans for Nordhavn

The agency By og Havn has proposed plans to develop Nordhavn as a new city district with tens of thousands of apartments and jobs. The district will be about six times larger than Indre Østerbro.

The Muncipality of Copenhagen plans to build 400,000 m² for residence and industry around Århusgade from 2008 onwards, and additional 200,000 m² at Kalkbrænderiløbet from 2015. The area is expected to be fully developed within 20-25 years and partially finances the expansion of the Copenhagen Metro.

Another future project for the Nordhavn area is the proposed UN-city (FN-byen) at the eastern part of Marmormolen. The 45,000 m² project will include most of the present UN activities in Copenhagen.
