Discover the up-and-coming Nordvest neighbourhood

Photo: Asger Støttrup Jensen

A culturally diverse neighbourhood off the beaten track and a place to experience an authentic and local part of Copenhagen. To get really under the skin of the architecture and urban development in this area, we highly recommend going on a guided tour by bike with beCopenhagen.

Nordvest often stands in the shadow of its more famous neighbouring areas but shouldn't be underestimated if you want to go real local and get under the skin of Copenhagen. One must-see in Nordvest is the jaw-dropping Grundtvig’s Church, but the neighbourhood also contains some hidden gems worth a visit. Spend a day or a half in NV with this quick guide.
