The infamous red light district and former working-class area of Copenhagen, Vesterbro, is actually one of the hippest areas in the Danish capital. As early as back in 2001, Wallpaper magazine proclaimed Vesterbro Copenhagen's hippest quarter, and in 2014 it made no. 4 on Thrillist's top 10 most hipster neighbourhoods on Earth.
The turnaround really began with the transformation of the old cattle market Øksnehallen into a light and stylish exhibition hall. The district is situated within walking distance of Copenhagen city centre, right behind the Central Station. It is one of the most fashionable places in Copenhagen - not just to live - but to shop, eat, drink and have a great night out.
Along Vesterbrogade and Istedgade, where you will find the original red light district on the first stretch from Copenhagen Central Station and up, you will find plenty of bars, restaurants, and designer stores. Are you looking for a fancy dinner or a fun night out go to the Meatpacking District where new restaurants and cool bars crowd the area. The quarter even boasts its own food street, frenchy Værnedamsvej – a gourmet’s paradise with specialist cheese, wine, fish and chocolate shops, as well as cafes and grocers - on the border between Frederiksberg and Vesterbro. Vesterbro is also known as Copenhagen V.
At the southern end of Skt Jørgens Sø lake, you’ll find a striking modern building offering you a ticket into space. A visit to Copenhagen’s planetarium will put stars in the eyes of the whole family.
Designed by MAA Knud Munk and opened in 1989, the planetarium is named after the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, and aims to educate and entertain the whole family through exhibitions and 3D and IMAX films.
Immerse yourself in the starry sky, watch movies in the large Dome and explore the exhibitions. The Dome is the heart of the Planetarium and is the largest in Northern Europe, with a big screen offering you a unique experience, that makes you feel like you are part of the movie. From films about volcanoes and astronauts to space exploration and animations suitable for younger children, there is a wide variety of programming. Check the website beforehand to find out the current program and show times.
No matter what film you choose, it always starts with a journey into space and a presentation of the current starry sky.
Most movies and shows will be narrated in Danish. However, if you would like to hear the English narration, headphones are available at the entrance.
A ticket gives access to all exhibitions and one film. During school holidays and weekends, you can also experience shows and stories about the universe, with free guided tours in the exhibition area.
The Elias Church was designed by Martin Nyrop the same architect who built the Copenhagn City Hall.
The church, centrally located at Vesterbro Torv, was opened May 17 1908 after years of hard work to gather the funds for this ambitous project.
Today Elias Church is a popular city church.
The Liberty Column in Copenhagen is a 20 meter tall Obelisque, erected in memory of the peasant reforms, 20 June 1788. These reforms led to the abolition of the adscription.
The four symbolic female figures on top of the column symbolise Bravery, Civic Virtue, Fidelity and The Industrious Cultivation of Land.
Connection to the construction of Copenhagen Central Station, The Liberty Column was moved a few meters from its original place.
In 1850-51, the monument was renovated for the first time. In 1999, it was unveiled after a huge renovation where the Obelisque and the four statues were replaced by exact copies.
Tivoli is a playground for young and old and a spot so full of wonder that it inspired Hans Christian Andersen and Walt Disney. Whether you come for the gardens, music or rides, you’ll have a blast.
Tivoli Gardens was founded in 1843 and has become a national treasure and an international attraction. Fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen visited many times, as did Walt Disney who even found the inspiration for his own Disney World here. When the garden was founded it was placed outside the city’s moats, but today it’s located right next to the Central station and within walking distance of City hall.
Part of Tivoli Gardens' secret is that there is something for everyone. The scenery is beautiful with exotic architecture, historic buildings, and lush gardens. At night, thousands of coloured lights create a fairytale atmosphere that is completely unique. It has quirks and charm, and details for you to discover – you might catch a glimpse of the guinea fowls or peacocks running freely through the gardens.
The rides are all designed to match Tivoli's architecture and gardens. Some rides are wonderfully nostalgic, while others will match the expectations of the keenest thrill seekers. Tivoli’s oldest and most popular ride, the wooden Rollercoaster from 1914, is one of only seven rollercoasters worldwide which have a brakeman on board every train. In contrast, you’ll also find Vertigo, which will turn you upside down at 100 km/h. It was voted Europe’s Best Ride in 2014.
The newest ride of all is Villa Vendetta, Denmark's largest permanent haunted house complete with actors, where guests embark on a journey through 12 different rooms spread over 800 spooky square meters.

The Meatpacking District is an area of Vesterbro that has housed the meat industry for many decades. It consists of three separate areas called the white, gray, and brown Kødby according to the color of the buildings.
In the early 2000s, when the City of Copenhagen realized that the functionalist buildings from the 1930s in Halmtorvet might interest other than just butchers, a vision of a new cultural melting pot began to take shape. The Meatpacking District is now a creative cluster where Copenhagen's new and trendy places open, such as restaurants, nightclubs and art galleries - alongside the slaughterhouses that still operates here.
The Meatpacking District is one of Copenhagen's most popular places to go out. Among other things you find art galleries, such as V1, Gallery Poulsen, and Bo Bjerggaard, the tea shop Aunt T, and Butcher's Lab - a combined gallery and gym. The Meatpacking District is also home to a variety of restaurants. Try the organic BioMio, some of the city’s best burgers and pizza, wine and dine at Paté Paté, or eat fresh fish at Fiskebaren.
The area is known for a lively nightlife with Jolene, Mesteren og Lærlingen, and Bakken right next to each other. The buildings and facades are listed, so you will not find any big name signs on the facades. Therefore, it can sometimes be a little difficult to navigate. Likewise, many restaurants, bars and galleries preserved the old slaughterhouses tiles and raw frames.
Discover one of the new art galleries in Copenhagen's meatpacking district.

One of Copenhagen’s main squares, City Hall Square or Rådhuspladsen is in front of the City Hall. It marks the start of the shopping street Strøget and is a key location for events and demonstrations.
It's an important public gathering space for the city – people gather here for demonstrations, to pay tribute to returning sports heroes, for big concerts, and for outdoor exhibitions and events including Copenhagen Pride. It's also the site of a hot dog stand, and occasionally plays host to flea markets.
The square is on the site of the city's former hay market and has been redesigned many times over the years, the most recent being in 1995-6.
Among the sculptures in the square are The Dragon Fountain, showing a fight between a bull and a dragon, and a statue of Hans Christian Andersen. If you look to the Richs Building from the square, you can also see The Weather Girl, a gilded sculpture of a girl with a bike that tells the weather. On rainy days, it rotates to show her walking her dog with an umbrella.
There is a bus hub on the northern side of the square, along with a metro station, making it a key public transport hub.
