Inner city

Inner city

Inner City is the heart of Copenhagen. It includes Copenhagen's oldest neighborhood with small, narrow streets and crooked houses. In the center you will find a myriad of great shopping streets, cozy cafes, restaurants, as well as green areas, parks, charming canals and a modern waterfront. The main artery of Inner City is the pedestrian street Strøget, that runs from City Hall Square to Kongens Nytorv. Strøget is always packed with people and street artists, but be sure to move down the numerous exciting side streets.
Østerbro

Østerbro

Broad boulevards, parks, delicacies, design shops. The neighborhood of Østerbro is somewhat posh and at the same time completely down to earth. Østerbro is located north of Copenhagen city centre. It is one of Copenhagen's most attractive and expensive living areas with the shops to match. Shop design at Normann Copenhagen, sip a glass of wine at Panzon or chill in Fælledparken – Denmark’s largest public park.
Frederiksberg

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 – ‘Kings Road’. Shopping is great here with many clothing shops as well as sushi restaurants, cafes and deli's. The same is true for street Værnedamsvej, which is both cosy and cool. Frederiksberg is also a green oasis with Frederiksberg Gardens, the romantic Garden of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Søndermarken.
Vesterbro

Vesterbro

Once Vesterbro was mostly known for its infamous red light district. Today it is one of the hippest places around. The district is situated within walking distance from the city centre, right behind the Central Station. It is one of the most fashionable places in the city - not just to live, but to shop, eat, drink and have a great night out.
Nørrebro

Nørrebro

Nørrebro is a vibrant area of Copenhagen only minutes away from the city centre. Trendy bars and fashionable designer shops lie next door to dodgy dive bars and cheap kebab places. The people here are cool and casual and so is the neighbourhood. The street Elmegade is full of small designer shops, and in the nearby street Ravnsborggade antique shops are lined up.
