Lille Langebro is a new addition to the already impressive range of initiatives making Copenhagen a trailblazer in urban biking and mobility.
Connecting the city centre with the island of Christianshavn, the bridge is proof that Copenhagen means business when it comes to maintaining status as one of the world’s best bike cities. After all, it’s not long ago other bike and pedestrian bridges saw the light of day.
With the new bridge, pedestrians and cyclists can enjoy a green, calm and safe route all the way from the City Hall Square to the Islands Brygge and Christianshavn neighbourhoods. The bridge is also part of BLOX, which is not only the iconic harbour-front building, but the entire project transforming this part of the harbour from deserted parkingpspace to recreational space, playground, harbour bath, and of course all the offerings inside the BLOX house, inlcuding Danish Architecture Center.
Some 10,000 cyclists bike the bridge each day, and as you might know, and as you might know, more people take the bike than the car to work or studies in Copenhagen.
Besides making is easier going from A to B across the harbour, Lille Langebro relieves some of the traffic pressure on its neighbouring bridge Langebro, which is used by some 40,000 cyclists on a daily basis.
