Amager Overview

Amager is a small island which is one of the two islands where Copenhagen is located it is one of the first places many travellers to Denmark will get to since it is the home of Copenhagen international airport in Kastrup.

The island used to serve as the vegetable garden of Copenhagen and on the southern part of the island you will see a bit of Dutch influence and names because it was settle by Dutch farmers who were invited to grow vegetables for the markets in Copenhagen. The days of Amager as the garden of Copenhagen are long gone and today it is mainly a residential area for people working in Copenhagen.
