  • The destrict meatpacking consists only of a few streets. A working-class neighborhood was here earlier, now there are clubs, bars and fashionable restaurants. And as so often in scene district, gibts also Burger forging as at the Juicy Burger, but also at a quarter like Vesterbro, the large urban trends can be read off as the vegan Café SimpleRaw. Vesterbro is a good alternative than the visit to the Mermaid on all cases.

  • We stayed in this somewhat particular district, to the West of the station. Still sex shops, stained glass with sexual offer and shelters for homeless and drug addicts (where the State give them items sure to get high), this takes place in 4 or 5 blocks from barrio, the rest is beautiful, architecture of the old modernized restored and in some cases Copenhagen, worth traverse it to have one knowledge of the city. I recommend joining a common patio are usually found among 3 or 4 blocks of flats, a kind of playground for children, very interesting.

  • This neighborhood like the rest of the city is tidy and well maintained. Here we were staying in a House that had a spectacular view on one of the Lakes. There is also the red light district and the Planetarium in this area. There are many supermarkets where you can buy something when you do not want to spend so much
