Ørestad is an ultra modern and ultra sleek part of Copenhagen – think of it as Architectural Digest award-winning designs built all in one place. Ørestad is a developing city area in Copenhagen, on the island of Amager. It is expected that 20,000 people will live in Ørestad, 20,000 will study, and 80,000 people will be employed in the area. The area is being developed using the new town concept with the Copenhagen Metro as the primary public transport grid, connecting the area with the rest of Metropolitan Copenhagen. It was originally built to test the modern urban living concept. Ørestad has LRT access to downtown of Copenhagen in about 10 min and it is connected to the 220 miles of bike trails in Copenhagen. 50% of residents in Copenhagen bike to work. It is quite astonishing how many bike trails and bike parking is here. It seems everyone owns a city bike, each more unique than the last and almost no one rides a mountain bike; it simply is impractical in the city. Bikes also have the right of way, and this moves traffic faster than you think.
