DieselHouse is an interactive exhibition on diesel technology located on the grounds of the still operating H. C. Ørsted Power Station in the South Docklands of Copenhagen, Denmark. The exhibition is centred on a gigantic decommissioned Burmeister & Wain diesel engine which was the world's largest for more than 30 years.History and premisesThe result of a collaboration between Museum of Copenhagen and MAN Diesel, DieselHouse opened in a former machine hall at H. C. Ørsted Power Station in June 2006. The conversion of the building was undertaken by Gottlieb & Paludan Architects and has retained the machine hall’s basic structures but inserted three new storeys with exhibition space and a gallery that flanks the large diesel engine. The exhibition space and gallery have a terse modern design which contrasts with the industrial surroundings.ExhibitionThe exhibition displays several diesel engines of different sizes. The largest of the engines, which was built in 1932 and remained the world's largest for more than 30 years, stands 12.5 meters tall and 24.5 meters wide and weighs 1,400 tons. It produces 22,500 HP and supplied Copenhagen with electricity. It remained in use during peak demand until the 1970s. During World War II a resistance group consisting of workers at the power station used the engine for hiding weapons. It is started up the first and third Sunday every month at 11 am and runs for 5 to 10 minutes. The museum also exhibits Burmeister & Wain's first diesel engine from 1904 with a modest 40 HP and a single cylinder. It is started up every Thursday at 2 pm.
Omkring den mastodontiske B&W dieselmotor fra 1932 kan publikum til lyden og lugten af arbejdende gamle motorer følge dieselteknologiens udvikling fra slutningen af 1800-tallet til nutiden, samt få et blik ind i fremtiden. Den teknologiske udvikling kobles sammen med historien om Københavns energiforsyning, om B&W skibsværft og motorfabriks udvikling over 150 år, om varetransport over havene og diesel-teknologiens brug i hele verden.
I DieselHouse fortælles i autentiske omgivelser historien om dieselmotoren, som er en af industrisamfundets centrale teknologier. Udstillingerne suppleres af forskellige typer audiovisuel formidling, der gør dem levende, og giver publikum mulighed for at fordybe sig alt efter interesse.
DieselHouse is a technical museum that documents an important part of Danish industrial history. You can contact us Monday to Thursday from 10 – 16. For further information, see “info”.
Around the giant B&W diesel engine from 1932, visitors can listen to and smell old, working engines and follow the development of diesel technology from the end of the 19th century to today, and can also catch a glimpse of the future.
DieselHouse tells the story of the diesel engine, one of the central technologies of the industrial society, in authentic surroundings. Exhibits are brought alive by different types of audiovisual presentations, giving visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves. As much as they please

Mærkningsordningen Danske Naturparker åbnede i sommeren 2013 og skal mærke områder med natur af særlig regional eller lokal betydning og gode rekreative friluftsmuligheder.
Mærkningsordningen er udviklet af Friluftsrådet på baggrund af erfaringer fra syv pilotprojekter i 2009-2012.
Grundlaget for danske naturparker er en enestående natur, men også kulturmiljø, rekreative muligheder, formidling og erhverv er vigtige elementer i en naturpark.
Naturparker defineres således:
Danske naturparker er større sammenhængende landskaber af regional betydning. De vil ofte indeholde naturområder af national og international betydning. De er velafgrænsede med stor landskabelig skønhed, naturrigdom og kulturhistorisk værdi. De repræsenterer landskaber karakteristiske for landets forskellige egne, som bør nyde særlig beskyttelse af hensyn til nuværende og kommende generationer.
Etablering af naturparker i Danmark skal give naturen et løft og give befolkningen bedre muligheder for friluftsoplevelser tæt på, hvor de bor. Naturparkerne skal sætte fokus på kommunernes naturperler og bidrage til en koordineret planlægning og udvikling, der tager hensyn til at forbedre naturkvaliteten og de rekreative behov.
Mærkningsordningen Danske Naturparker udvikles med støtte fra Nordea-fonden
Vestre Fængsel is the main jail of the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Erected in 1895, it is Denmark's largest prison with a total capacity of 530 inmates. It primarily houses pretrial detainees, not convicted felons.During much of the German occupation of Denmark, Vestre Fængsel was operated by German police.
Sønder Boulevard is a boulevard in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark, whose broad central reserve has been turned into a linear park with various facilities for sports and other activities. It extends from Halmtorvet and continues south-west to Enghavevej at Enghave station.HistorySønder Boulevard follows the initial stretch of Denmarks first railway, the West Line between Copenhagen and Roskilde, which opened in 1847. In 1864, the rail line was moved to a more northern corse, through Frederiksberg, before being moved to its current position just south of Sønder Boulevard in 1911. The portion of the abandoned railway terrain closest to the city was transformed into a street known as Ny Stormgade, but Sønder Boulevard in its current form was established in 1905. The name was chosen to complement Vester Boulevard (en. West Boulevard), which was renamed H. C. Andersens Boulevard in 1954.In World War II, a stray British bomb hit No. 106 and exploded during Operation Carthage on 21 March 1945, killing 11 people in the building.Sønder Boulevard was long a dilapidated thoroughfare dominated by traffic. The elm trees which originally lined it were hit by Dutch elm disease and had to be removed.

Enghaveparken is a public park in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. It was laid out in the late 1920s to cater for the citizens of the expanding city.The park is designed in the Neoclassical style. It has grassy lawns, flower beds and contains a bandstand, a playground and facilities for sports as well as barbecuing.HistoryIn the late 19th century, the Royal Danish Horticultural Society established 478 allotments in "Dronningens Enghave" at the site where Enghaveparken lies today. In the 1920s the allotments were moved and the small public park Enghaven was laid out under the direction of City Architect Poul Holsøe, who also designed the red-brick social housing which was built at the same time and borders the park on three sides. Tredje Natur has won a competition to redesign the park.Layout and featuresThe slightly rectangular park is divided into six spaces: a water garden, a rose garden, a perennial garden, a sports section, a playground and a 'meeting place'.Basin and fountainAlong its central axis, in front of the main entrance which faces Enghavevej, there is a gravel area centred on a square basin with a fountain. It is popular with ducks and grey heron which come from a colony on a small island in close-by Frederiksberg Park.
Humleby is an enclave of terraced houses situated next to the Carlsberg area in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. They were built between 1885 and 1891 by the Worker's Building Society to provide healthy housing for the workers at Burmeister & Wain.The area consists of 235 three storey houses. They were designed by Frederik Bøttger, the architect of the Building Society, who was inspired by English working-class housing.Streets Vesterfælledvej Ny Carlsberg Vej* Freundsgade - named after the sculptor Hermann Ernst Freund (1786-1840) Jerichausgade - named after the sculptor Jens Adolf Jerichau (1816-1883) Bissensgade - named after Herman Wilhelm Bissen (1798-1868) Ernst Meyers Gade - named after the painter Ernst Meyer (1797-1861) Lundbyesgade - named after the painter Johan Thomas Lundbye (1818-1848) Küchlersgade - opkaldt efter the painter Albert Küchler (1803-1886) Carstensgade - named after the painter Asmus Jacob Carstens (1754-1798)
DGI-byen is a facility that houses various spa facilities, restaurants, hotels, conference facilities, a bowling alley, flexible multi-centres, sports clubs, a superellipse shaped swimming pool and Vandkulturhuset, (Danish for "Water Culture House"), located in central Copenhagen, Denmark.DGI-byen is situated within the Meat District (Kødbyen), a historical industrial area that was transformed into a recreation area for cultural and leisure activities from 1993. However, most of DGI-byen consists of new buildings, in contrast to the rest of the Meat District. One exception is Øksnehallen, formerly a stable for 1,600 cattle, now an exhibition and events venue.First parts of the complex were opened in 1999. It is named after Danske Gymnastik- og Idrætsforeninger ("Danish Gymnastics and Sports Associations"), the main umbrella organisation of 5,000 local sports associations in Denmark with 1,3 million members. The second part of the name is by, Danish for "town" or "city", hinting that the facilities are extensive enough to operate as a mini city within Copenhagen.The main building is a 22,000 square metre facility situated directly behind Copenhagen Central Station. A walled-off portion provides infrastructure for DGI-byen's numerous cultural activities and events. DGI-byen is a rapidly expanding area of the city, with ongoing construction. DGI-byen hosts a variety of banquets, concerts, etc. One recognizable landmark seen from the Central Station is a giant outdoor climbing gym wall. The recreational facilities are aimed at the common public, rather than a business or upscale segment.
Halmtorvet is a public square in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is located next to Copenhagen Central Station in front of the Meat District. The oblong square eventually turns into Sønder Boulevard, a broad street with a park strip in its central reserve, which continues to Enghavevej at Enghave station.HistoryCopenhagen's haymarket was originally located just inside the Western City Gate where the City Hall Square lies today. It closed on 1 January 1888 and relocated to the area outside the new Livestock Market which had opened at the site in 1879. Market days were Wednesday and Saturday and up to several hundred loads of hay and straw were traded and distributed to cattle and horse stables around the city.Up through the 20th century, with improved infrastructure, livestock moved out of the city and horses lost their role in transportation, and the haymarket finally closed. The area fell into despair and became associated with prostitution and drug dealing. The site was also dominated by through traffic, buses and goods transport.The area underwent gradual gentrification up through the 1990s and Halmtorvet was thoroughly refurbished from 1999 to 2003 as part of a major programme for urban renewal in the Vesterbro area. The first stage was designed by the office of the City Architect and completed in 2000. The second and third stages were designed by the Park Office of the City and carried out in 2003. In order to obtain a coherent space in the area a large gas regulator in front of the Brown Meat District was removed.
Istedgade is a street located in the district of Vesterbro in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.Located west of Copenhagen Central Station, Istedgade is a 1-kilometer straight street starting in the cheap hotel district, moving through the porn and drugs area to modern Vesterbro, where 1900s tenement style blocks have undergone significant modernization and the street now cuts through one of the hippest neighbourhoods in Copenhagen. It is generally considered the main traffic artery and the heart of Vesterbro.The lewd part of Istedgade has for many years constituted its image along with the local residents' views of themselves as true working class, united under the 1940s (during German occupation) slogan "Istedgade overgiver sig aldrig!" (Istedgade will never surrender!) To this day a banner with the slogan is flown across the street around Liberation Day (5 May) to commemorate the Istedgade uprising and general strikes of the summer of 1944.Today, as almost all of Istedgade and with it Vesterbro has undergone a gentrification. Hip stores and cool cafes abound while real estate prices have risen faster than in most of Copenhagen.Notable cafes and bars: Riccos kaffebar (coffee shop, open 9 am – 11 pm)Bang og Jensen (cafe and bar)Riesen bar, around the corner up Oehlenschlägersgade (bar, open Wed–Sat 8 pm – late night)Vega, on Enghavevej around the corner from Enghave Plads (concerts, DJs, nightclubs and bars, including Ideal bar. Open bar most days, nightclub Wed–Sat till late, scheduled concerts all year round)Blomsten (bodega from the late 1880s)

Skydebanehaven is a small public park in the heart of the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. Its name refers to the former shooting range of the Royal Copenhagen Shooting Society which used to be located on the site. The most distinctive feature of the park is the Neo-Gothic Shooting Range Wall which was constructed in 1887 to shield traffic on Istedgade from stray bullets. The other end of the park is bounded by the rear of the former headquarters of the Shooting Society, a Neoclassical mansion which now houses the Museum of Copenhagen.HistoryIn the 1750s Royal Copenhagen Shooting Society established a shooting range in the area which was located outside the fortified city, next to the main road leading in and out of the Western City Gate. In 1782 the society acquired a 3.5 hectare piece of land, stretching from present day Vesterbrogade to the beach just south of the city. The society also built a mansion, completed in 1787, which was to serve as a venue for its active social life.When Vesterbro started to develop in the second half of the 19th century, after the city had been allowed to develop beyond its now decommissioned fortifications, the City expropriated much of the Shooting Society's grounds. In 1887 a tall wall was constructed to shield newly established Istedgade from stray bullets from the shooting range. The wall was designed by the architect Ludvig Knudsen in a Neo-Gothic style. Knudsen also modernized the interior of the Shooting Society's mansion in the 1890s and added a small new wing towards the gardens.

The City Hall Square is a public square in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark, located in front of the Copenhagen City Hall. Its large size, its central location and its affiliation with the city hall make it a popular venue for a variety of events, celebrations and demonstrations. It is often used as a central point for measuring distances from Copenhagen.The City Hall Square is located at the southwestern end of the pedestrian street Strøget which connects it to Kongens Nytorv, the other large square of the city centre, passing Gammeltorv/Nytorv and Amagertorv along the way. Opposite Strøget, Vesterbrogade extends into the Vesterbro district and later crosses the border to Frederiksberg. H. C. Andersens Boulevard, Copenhagen's most heavily congested street, and Vester Voldgade pass the square on either side of the city hall.Apart from the City Hall, notable buildings around the square include Politikens Hus, the headquarters of national daily newspaper Politiken, and Industriens Hus, the headquarters of the DI.
