CopenhillAmager Bakke / Copenhill

Spectacular and innovative in the true sense of the words. That's Copenhill – the artificial ski slope and recreational hiking area, built on top of the new waste management centre. Not only will the new architectural beacon be visible from most of Copenhagen, a giant chimney way up on top will be blowing giant smoke rings. This sounds like something out of a sci-fi fantasy but is reality.
