Harbour of Dragor, South of Copenhagen, Denmark
Dragør old town and harbour:
Dragør is a small (population 12,000) and very old town about 12 km far from the centre of Copenhagen at the south-eastern coast of Amager Island. It is worth visiting, as the old Danish small town character is well preserved here, as well as the old style Dragør harbour with a beautiful view of the Øresund Bridge.
Old streets and houses in Dragør
The old town of Dragør is full of old houses of all colours (mainly yellow facades and red roofs) and the traditional Danish cobblestone streets. Some 150 years ago Dragør was a very important port and primarily a seafaring town. Dragør harbour is a perfect place to relax, especially in summer (it is very cold in winter, as everywhere in Denmark). You can just sit and watch the various boats in the port, the big ships in Øresund and Øresund Bridge behind.
Getting from Copenhagen to Dragør
You can get to Dragør by Copenhagen local bus or on your own – the ride from the centre of Copenhagen should take about 30 minutes. On your way to Dragør you will have to drive through a tunnel under Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (there might be a plane just landing above you).
