Location: KDY Yachting Marina, Tuborg South, Hellerup
Tuborg Harbour and Canal are the main elements in VLA’s master plan for Tuborg South.
KDY Yachting Marina is placed as the central element in the harbour with a fantastic view over the entire harbour, the canal and Oresund. The central placement of the club house also divides the harbour into two basins.
The club house’s main architectural characteristic is the large folding roof that closes the building off towards the housing area in the south but opens out towards the harbour and the beautiful view of Oresund.

Royal Danish Yachtclub KDY Copenhagen
The Royal Danish Yacht Club (RDYC) was founded in 1866 and was originally named the Danish Association for Pleasure Sailing (Dansk Forening for Lystsejlads). The Club works to promote sailing in Denmark and to support its members in their favourite sport.
The first clubhouse was built in 1884 at Pinneberg’s Ravelin on the Langelinie site facing the Copenhagen waterfront. For the first 15 years, the Club rented the house from De Forenede Bryggerier (the United Breweries of Denmark), and the building was replaced by Fritz Koch’s new and bigger pavilion in 1903.
Since World War II, there has hardly been any sailing activity from Langelinie, but the Club still has its beautiful premises and Secretariat on this address; now in Eva & Nils Koppel’s Langelinie Pavillon that was inaugurated in 1958.
Her Majesty The Queen of Denmark Margrethe II inaugurated the new Club House in Tuborg Harbor on the 12th of June 2007. The new clubhouse is built in connection to the new marina in Tuborg, which is also operated by RDYC. The area was until few years ago the headquarter for the world-famous Tuborg brewery.
