Few things say ‘hygge’ better than Central Hotel & Café, the world’s tiniest hotel just off Værnedamsvej. Getting a room here is hard (since there is only one), but Vesterbro is one of the areas in Copenhagen which houses the most hotels.
In Vesterbro you’re lucky enough to have a selection of quality restaurants covering all ranges of cuisines and price ranges. From the rustic to the more refined like Restaurant KUL located in The Meatpacking District.
Flush down your dinner with a cocktail at Lidkoeb. Tucked away in a charming little courtyard and recently voted among the world’s 50 best bars.
Showing you one of the stages would have been the simple choice here. Instead, here’s a picture perfectly encapsulating the slick, original 1950’s architecture that makes Vega such a unique space and one of the youngest listed buildings in Denmark.
Made up of The White, The Brown and The Grey Meat City, The Meatpacking District makes up the beating heart of Vesterbro’s nightlife. But apart from clubs, restaurants and bars locals go for the galleries, the shops and the cultural activities like the popular food market.
Cross the harbour 7 meters above the water. The Bicycle Snake takes you from Vesterbro to Islands Brygge in style and with perfect vistas of Copenhagen’s harbour, towers and spires.
Right on Vesterbro's main strip, Sønder Boulevard you'll find the community house Absalon. The doors to the former church are always open to anyone and for all kinds of funny events and activities. Locals flock to morning yoga, daily community dinners, movies, parties, vinyl markets and plant markets - just to name a few.
Locals go to this beautifully green cemetery (which is techically just outside of Vestbero) not only to pay their respects to the dead or for religious purposes, but just as much simply to kick back and enjoy some fresh air in natural surroundings.
