Map of and guides to Copenhagen's city areas.
Compared to other parts of Copenhagen, Østerbro is less hectic. But it is also the part of Copenhagen that offers most recreational areas – such as the city’s largest public park, Fælledparken – and some of the finest cafées, the city has to offer.
The edgiest part of Copenhagen, a place where hipsters, students, families and immigrants from all over the world mix at cafées and galleries. Also home to some of the most exclusive independent shops and restaurants in Copenhagen.
Technically, Frederiksberg is not a part of Copenhagen municipality, despite being right in the middle of it. The real forte of Frederiksberg lies in the numerous parks, bicycle paths and beautiful avenues. Perfect for quiet strolls before hitting the local nightlife.
An extensive renovation in the mid-nineties redeveloped and tranformed Vesterbro from a run-down working-class district to the hippest neighbourhood in town, with nightclubs, restaurants, bars and independent retailers lining the streets.
Juice to go, drinks to stay and an abundance of bold Danish design. Copenhagen K – known as city or just downtown – is a Mecca whether you are hungry for food or eager to shop. In short – everything you need.
In this quarter, cut through by pretty canals, you find a mix of top designers, stylish architects and scruffy hippies, top celebrities and working class pensioners. Home to both the world’s best restaurant and the freetown of Christiania, it is well worth a visit.
From Islands Brygge – or Bryggen – you have a great view of Copenhagen. During the warm summer months, thousands of Copenhageners go here, either to swim in the popular harbour bath or to play sports on the many open lawns along the harbour.
