'''Amager''' (pronounced Ama'r) is a district and island southwest of central [[Copenhagen]], covering some some 96 km² (37 mi²), and mostly notable as the home of '''Copenhagen Airport''' and the charming old fishing hamlet of '''Dragør'''. Long considered the backwaters of the city, this old working class district is now undergoing rapid development, contributing to some wonderful contrasts; from the huge uncultivated wetlands of '''Kalvebod Fælled''', the ultra modern '''Ørestad''' development area, the laid back and impossibly picturesque '''Dragør''' fishing hamlet to the fiercely local patriotic public housing blocks on the northern part of the island.
