The Shipyard Route – explore the docklands on your own

The dockland of Refshaleøen was home to the city’s shipyard, Burmeister & Wain, for 125 years. In its heyday, the shipyard was Denmark’s largest workplace. After the shipyard closed in 1996, the area lay dormant for many years. Now the docklands are being transformation into an incubation zone for creative start-ups. Nonetheless, all the buildings bear witness to the golden era of shipbuilding. Hosting The Shipyard Route, the Refshaleøen Real Estate Company, which currently owns the land, seeks to relate some of the industrial legacy of the area.


Meet a former employee and receive the route at Hovedvagten every day until 20:00.
