Posh Frederiksberg

Frederiksberg is a fashionable part of Copenhagen with excellent shopping opportunities and green spaces. It is more posh than Nørrebro and Vesterbro, and the people living here are usually older and more established. Main street through Frederiksberg is Gammel Kongevej aka King's Road. Shopping is great here with many clothing shops as well as sushi restaurants, cafes and deli's.

The quarter even boasts its own food street, frenchy Værnedamsvej – a gourmet’s paradise with specialist cheese, wine, fish and chocolate shops, as well as cafes and grocers - on the border between Frederiksberg and Vesterbro. Frederiksberg is also a green oasis with Frederiksberg Gardens, the romantic Garden of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Søndermarken.

We also recommend our area guides to Nørrebro and Østerbro.
