13 Design Districts of 3daysofdesign Copenhagen

Truly unique to 3daysofdesign is the role of Copenhagen itself, as the backdrop for the entire festival. Unlike other design weeks that designate one primary neighbourhood as the focal point, at 3daysofdesign you have the opportunity to explore and experience 13 different Design Districts throughout the city. And this year, we are pleased to have as many as 280 exhibitors from Denmark and around the world showcasing their work.

To help visitors navigate through the exciting programme, the organisation has grouped together the 13 busiest festival districts: Each has a unique character which we represent through memorable landmarks on our festival map. Within each district visitors can find a diverse offering of exhibitions from emerging to established design on display in small galleries to vast showrooms.

Design runs deep in Denmark's cultural DNA and has an enormous impact on the Danish way of living. Copenhagen is known worldwide as a modern, forward-thinking city that champions design and innovation, where a high priority is put on simple, human-centric ideas, craftsmanship, natural materials and sustainable solutions. It's everywhere you look in the cutting-edge architecture, interior design, fashion, food and urban planning. At the same time, the city is steeped in history. Replete with royal palaces, baroque gardens, rococo mansions, fountains, ancient artefacts and cobblestone streets, reflecting a cultural heritage that we are keen on keeping alive. It's this juxtaposition of the past and the present that makes Copenhagen such a vibrant metropolis, emblematic of Denmark's reputation as a design nation. In fact, UNESCO has named Copenhagen the World Capital of Architecture 2023.

Copenhagen's design-driven atmosphere can be experienced while exploring the 13 Design Districts. Each area represents an important facet of Copenhagen's identity, and has its own distinctive history, personality, vibe and sense of aesthetics. You'll find iconic architectural gems, design museums and art galleries, old breweries reimagined into mini cities, Michelin- star restaurants, cosy cafés, outdoor saunas, dry ski slopes, start-up concepts and much more. Together they offer a multi-sensory experience of design – and Copenhagen.

Take a look at the brief overview of this year's 13 Design Districts here.
