  • It is a typical district of Copenhagen, around the central station, very lively, with shopping streets populated by shops, bars and restaurants are where tourists and residents. It is an area that is ideal for staying as it is close to many attractions, and also boasts a very good hotel. There are some streets little traffic at night and also a "red" zone; Anyway it was not unsafe.
