Central Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a melting pot of very different areas and neighbourhoods, all with their distinctive flavour and character - from ultra hip, trashy and trendy Vesterbro to multicultural Nørrebro, from picture perfect Østerbro and posh Frederiksberg with romantic gardens and 18th and 19th century houses to the very core of the city with its narrow streets and charming Christianshavn. Copenhagen has something for everyone. Find the area that suits your personality, or why not dare yourself to cross over to unknown territory? Just stroll around, drink coffee at the sidewalk cafes, shop, people watch and take it all in. Remember to stop and stare once in a while. Look up. Many of Copenhagen's most beautiful sights are above your eye level.
