Amager also has a connection across the Øresund to Sweden, the Øresund Connection. Its western part begins with a tunnel from Amager to another Danish island, Peberholm. Copenhagen Airport is located on the island, around 7 km from Copenhagen City Centre. Amager is the largest island in Øresund, and the only with a large population. As of 2014 close to 180.000 people lives on the island, including its northern tip, Christianshavn. The northern part is included in Copenhagen minicipality. The middle part comprises Tårnby municipality and Dragør municipality is located on the south-east part of the island. Most of the western part is an 1930's to 1950's enlargement from the shallow sound towards Zealand, which in known as Kalveboderne. The enlargement has never been been build-up and its soil isn't suitable for agricultural use. However the area between Dragør town and the airport is cultivated area of best quality. Amager has in the past been referred to as the "kitchen of Copenhagen".
