Scandic has opened Scandic Nørreport, a boutique hotel located in central Copenhagen which will be the first Danish hotel to be certified according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel’s new requirements.
Located next to Nørreport Station and Kongens Have, the hotel features 100 rooms spread over six floors. The concept behind the hotel’s interior design aims to create a warm atmosphere mixing Nordic tone together with Danish design.
Level Six, the hotel’s rooftop bar and terrace, is located on the sixth floor, high above the urban bustle, overlooking the city. Ingredients used for cocktails came from a collaboration with a number of small Danish distilleries. Guests will also be able to enjoy a variety of meals made using organic and local ingredients.
Scandic is the only hotel company in Denmark whose hotels are ecolabeled by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, and Scandic Nørreport will be the first Danish hotel to be certified according to Nordic Swan Ecolabel’s new requirements that include a special focus on climate impact. This means that Scandic Nørreport will focus on reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Scandic Nørreport doesn’t just mark the opening of a new boutique hotel with a great location and fantastic rooftop bar, it also marks the beginning of a busy summer during which we’re looking forward to welcoming Nordic travelers back to Copenhagen again. The size and design of the hotel suit this part of the city and will strengthen our position in the hotel market in Copenhagen as we offer guests a new and slightly different type of Scandic hotel experience compared with our existing portfolio in the capital.
Søren Faerber, Head of Scandic Hotels Denmark
Meeting the Nordic Swan Ecolabel’s new requirements shows just how ambitious Scandic is in taking responsibility for protecting the environment and addressing climate change. Scandic has focused on sustainability for many years and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel is one of the most important tools in this process. I hope that other hotels will be inspired by Scandic and follow suit.

With the opening of Scandic Nørreport, Scandic now operates 13 hotels in Greater Copenhagen with a total of 3,154 rooms, and 29 properties in Denmark.
