About our home

The ferry is 90 years old, the oldest wood car-ferry in Denmark. Rebuild from 1999-2009 to a houseboat - combinated with an spacious office - a unique Houseboat - fully equipped with modern facillities and modern Danish furniture. We have 4 bikes a room for children to play in and a home theatre with 1000 of DVD film.

The boat has 4 different terraces so you can always find a spot in the sun or a place in the shade. If you like swimming the harbour water is proven clean enough to take a dive in. But it is for good swimmers only!

You might say we have a giant pool right outside. But we have children and the entire ferry is safe and secured with fences and net to provide minors from falling into the water. No one has ever fallen over board.

The ultimate location in Copenhagen. Next to the Opera House on beautiful HOLMEN near Christianshavn. some 500 meters from the "free-town" Christiania.

    But Copenhagen is biking town. And we have 4-5 bikes. And good public transporttation right outside the boat. Bus and harbourbus.

    We are often able to make shorter swaps, or just lend out our houseboat non-simuoltainius, since we have a second house on the countryside.

Where is it?


Next to Nordatlantens Brygge Next to no 1 rated restaurant in the world NOMA Next to a lot of beautiful boats. And a public Ferry transporting you to the very centre of Copenhagen in 5 minutes.

From the tourist guide:
Christianshavn is a trendy part of the city with its own unique personality. Businessmen, artists, yuppies, hippies and traditional families with children live side-by-side among cool cafes, Michelin-starred restaurants and charming 19-century houses along picturesque canals. Christianshavn is at once a small town and a big city. And since the opening of the underground Metro Station at Christianshavns Square, it has become quick and easy to reach. ... Some of the most atmospheric streets in Christianshavn are those that run along the canal. Christianshavn's Canal functions as a community garden park for the residents from the adjoining streets.

Holmen is a former military area, but when the navy pulled out in 1996, this big scenic area was opened to the public. The main entrance is at the end of Prinsessegade on Christianshavn. Another way to get to Holmen is to go by boat with the canal tours from Nyhavn or Gammel Strand. The big rigging-tower, a stone construction with a copper roof dating from 1749, is the landmark of Holmen and a part of the Copenhagen skyline. The Navy has resided on Holmen since 1690. Gunshots still thunder from Sixtus Batteriet at sunset and dawn. Cultural activities and artists have also moved into Holmen with the four art schools located there. It's nice to sometimes get away from the noise and stress of the big city. ! Try the restaurants along the harbour. Near the water, it is cool even on the hottest days. And from here you have a magnificent view over Amalienborg and Marmorkirken.
