A Walk through Denmark’s Maritime History

We went from Islands Brygge to Refshaleøen. A fun and interesting walk. Fun because of the colorful life along the canal, and interesting because we went through districts that exude interesting ship- and industrial history.
On Refshaleøen it is the history of the shipyard Burmeister & Wain that occupies our thoughts. Denmark’s largest shipyard and leading diesel engine manufacturer until 1996.

Vi gik fra Islands Brygge til Refshaleøen. En sjov og interessant gåtur. Sjov på grund af det farverige liv langs kanalen, og interessant, fordi vi gik gennem kvarterer, der rummer interessant skibs- og industrihistorie.
På Refshaleøen er det historien om skibsværftet Burmeister & Wain, som optager vores tanker. Danmark største skibsværft og førende dieselmotor producent indtil 1996.

    • It really is a marvellous walk through the streets of Island Brygge and Christians Havn. The Harbour Bus makes it so much easier if you don’t have that much time or cannot walk that far.
      Thanks for commenting!

    • Gracias por tu comentario preciosa, Magnoliae. Me encanta pasear por los canales y el mar azul 🙂
      Un fuerte abrazo,
      Hanna

  1. Un maravilloso paseo a través de tus fotos y de tu mano vuela la imaginación y es como vivirlo de verdad.
    Un millón de gracias, querida Hanna!
    Besos y más besos.

    • Querida Barbara. El verano ha sido horrible este año. Pero cuando el sol logró brillar a través de las muchas capas oscuras de amenazadoras nubes, todos los seres vivos florecieron y la alegría era notable entre todos. La luz del sol es un gran tamaño 🙂
      Un abrazo inmenso ❤

  2. Everthing looks so clean and fresh and vibrant, Hanna! What a beautiful part of the world you live in. Gorgeous shots, as always. 🙂

    • Jane, I really do appreciate the work that has been done for bringing the environment in good shape.
      The port has been characterized by heavy industry for many years and it isn’t many years ago that the basins for bathing was established because the water was clean enough. That makes me happy and so does your comment 🙂
      Wish you a great day,
      Hanna
