Hipster Vesterbro

The infamous red light district and former working-class area of Copenhagen is actually one of the most fashionable places in Copenhagen - not just to live - but to shop, eat, drink and have a great night out. Vesterbro, situated next to the Central Station, made no. 4 on Thrillist's top 10 most hipster neighbourhoods on Earth.

Are you looking for a dinner – budget, value-for-money or gourmet - or a fun night out go to the Meatpacking District where new restaurants and cool bars crowd the area.

Vesterbro, also known as Copenhagen V, boasts its own charming foodie street, frenchy Værnedamsvej – a gourmet’s paradise with artisan food shops, wine bars, restaurants, cafés and grocers.

We also recommend our area guides to Nørrebro and Christianshavn & Holmen.
