Gribskov - Troldebakkerne development area

Troldebakkerne - Helsinge

Troldebakkerne near Helsinge

A residential area for 1,500 new inhabitants, covering 70 acres

Troldebakkerne is the name of a future residential area covering 70 acres North of Helsinge in Gribskov Municipality.

Troldebakkerne (in English: "The Troll Hills") will form a brand new part of the existing town of Helsinge, the main town of Gribskov Municipality,  in the middle of North Zealand.

The new area will make room for 1,500 new inhabitants to the 8,000 people already living in Helsinge.  

The vision is to develop an urban area based on ideas of community, the combining of natural and urban spaces, edible landscapes between housing, and the concept of circular economy.

In the autumn of 2017 the Municipality of Gribskov has begun discussions with the building and development contractors that are to collaborate on realizing and building the new district.
