SUMMARY: in a bid to become the first carbon-neutral capital city by 2025, Copenhagen has come up with some fantastically innovative ideas for how to reach this goal. By expanding their extraordinary network of bike lanes, delivering recycling initiatives that actually work, and ensuring that a great deal of their food produce is fresh/organic/vegan means they are well on their way to achieving green living. Now comes their ingenious waste management system that designers and engineers have managed to double up as a recreational centre. The Amager Ressource Center (known as ARC) turns waste into electrical energy lighting buildings and heating homes. It is also known as CopenHill, which boasts a dry ski slope, hiking route, and a massive 85m climbing wall. If you want to save yourself from aching legs there is an elevator open to public use; the fantastic view from the top is not to be missed. WHEN TO VISIT: opening hours are 12:00-20:00 Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri; Wednesdays 12:00-22:00; Saturdays 10:00-20:00; Sundays 10:00-18:00. DON’T MISS: the café/bar at the bottom of the slope which serves up a selection of hot snacks and chilled drinks. Thursday and Saturday are the designated party evenings so aim for then if you want to sample the after-ski! It would hardly be a ski trip without an après bar, would it? HOW TO GET THERE: First, get the M1/M2 line to Christianshavn St. (Metro), then change to bus 2A. The bus stop Christianshavn St. (Torvegade) is right by the station and easy to find. Get off at Lynetten (Refshalevej) which is the second to last stop. It is then a ten-minute walk from Lynetten bus stop. If you are staying near Vesterport or in Frederiksberg you can take the bus line 37 and get off at Amagerværket which is the final stop. NOTE: To go on the climbing wall you must be certified. For the ski slope, you can rent equipment (package price starting from 150dkk) or bring your own - lessons are also on offer. There are membership options available, check out their website for more details.
