Slackliners walk highline over Copenhagen’s harbor

STORY: During the space of an hour, several slackliners attempted the crossing below grey skies as crowds of Copenhagen residents gathered along nearby bridges and along the harbour to watch and cheer as the walkers edged along the line suspended from the Danish Architecture Centre.

"We're jokingly calling it the fifth bridge of Copenhagen," said Benjamin Brinch.

The event is part of the opening of the 'Copenhagen in Common' exhibition, held at the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC), based around the theme of community in the capital.

The slackline walk was organised partly to encourage residents of Copenhagen to see the city in a different way, according to the director of the DAC.
