    Sluseholmen won the 2009 Town Planning Prize in recognition of its alternative and exciting urban environment. Sluseholmen's family-friendly harbour residences are an alternative to suburban houses with gardens. The development is characterized by small blocks with narrow houses of different heights and with a great deal of variation in the architectural style.

    The canals are the guiding principle in the development. Residents have a view of either the harbour channel or of the canals. The canals form eight islands and their names all end in -holm (meaning islet in Danish) - Askholm, Egholm, Kidholm etc. The houses are located shoulder to shoulder, forming a contiguous block system with a courtyard in the centre.

    The tour goes through Sluseholm's canal environment on foot and past Bådklubben Valby, which has been preserved alongside the new canal neighbourhood. By boat, the tour can go through Teglværkshavn and continue through Sydhavnen, past Islands Brygge, Havnestad, Havneholmen and Teglholmen.
