A day in Vesterbro:
The once-seedy Copenhagen neighbourhood gives a flavour of the capital that locals enjoy, with designer shops and cafes, plus restaurants and night spots of the revamped Meatpacking District
The allure of Vesterbro, the district that spreads west from Copenhagen's central sation, is in the contrast it provides with the colourful waterside houses, cobbled streets and tourist-thronged sites of the city centre. Here, the hordes thin, the streets widen and you can tap into a Danish living vibe that manages to be laid-back yet sophisticated. There's little evidence of the seedy nightlife that once made it a no-go area; now student dives and tattoo shops are interspersed with charming courtyard bars and design shops.
1. A good starting point is on the eastern border, where it meets leafy Frederiksburg. Granola (Værnedamsvej 5, (website hidden)) is something of a local institution, a spot where families come for a pancake breakfast (45DKK, about £5), old ladies stop for a croissant, and earnest young intellectuals sit discussing books. The décor is refreshingly un-Scandi, though its menu and civilised touches are Danish through and through – order cinnamon toast and tea (part of the "sweet breakfast platter", £10). The owner, Leif, also has a "hotel" around the corner – a one-room establishment atop his tiny Central cafe ((website hidden), £190 B&B) that feels a bit like the cabin of a beautifully refurbished boat.
2. When you leave Granola you'll step out on to Værnedamsvej, one of Copenhagen's loveliest streets. People come here for the food – wine bar Falernum (number 16) and restaurant Les Trois Cochons (number 10) are justifiably popular – but also for Blomsterskuret (number 3), a flower shop that would tempt even non-gardeners with its displays; Dora (number 6), which stocks homewares by Georg Jensen and Hay; and Tout Petit (number 17), a little shop piled high with floral fabrics from which the owner rustles up coo-worthy outfits for babies andchildren. There's even a concept shop, Playtype (also number 6), for font nerds, selling posters, mugs and T-shirts.
3. If you walk the length of Vesterbrogade (window shopping for furniture in shops such as Nyhuus at number 115 or Designer Zoo at number 137 on the way) you'll be ready for coffee by the end. Enghave Kaffe (Enghave plads 3, (website hidden)) is decorated with old motorbike paraphernalia (retro helmets, a vintage bike) and is run by three friendly Harley-Davidson riders who take their coffee seriously. Take a seat on the streetside benches for some people watching and you'll probably find yourself next to a pram or two – Danes often leave sleeping babies outside cafes and restaurants in an admirable display of parental nonchalance. Nearby, Vintage Kids (Enghave plads 17) has cool vintage and second-hand clothing for children.
4. The Carlsberg Museum ((website hidden)) probably isn't the best museum in the world but it is part of an interesting development on Vesterbro's western fringes. The famous lager's enormous former brewing plant is slowly being transformed into a "microcity", currently comprising a museum about the beer's history, a couple of bars, a restaurant, a fun "pop-up" area where locals sell second-hand clothes and an "urban beach". The complex also includes a Climbing Forest ((email hidden)), which brilliantly showcases the hearty, eco-minded Danish world view in a hippyish climbing trail along wooden platforms and zipwires.
5. If you're channelling local traditions you should have smørrebrød for lunch. This rye bread with toppings is often described as an open sandwich though that hardly does justice to the creations coming out of the kitchen at Ol & Brod (Viktoriagade 6, (website hidden)). A smart new restaurant with communal tables outside, it's an offshoot of the area's hip Mikkeller beer bar (practically next door) which supplies the refreshments. If you don't like beer, the aquavit menu has more than 50 options.
6. Istedgade is Vesterbro's best shopping artery. Stroll along it and you'll find shops selling designer fashion, antiques and toys. Bicycle-lovers are especially well catered for – look out for the stylish cycling capes at Kyoto ((website hidden)) and the sit-up-and-beg bikes at Cykelfabrikken (cykhttp://fastfotopicdesk:8079/cgi-bin/MogulServiceDesk?Action=GetAssetData&dbName=GNL+Picture+Management&userName=Gavin+McOwan&key=GD(phone number hidden)(website hidden)). It's worth exploring off the main road for little gems, too. Sort Kaffe & Vinyl (Skydebanegade 4) sells vintage and new records in a shop that doubles as a café.
7. About seven years ago, the former butcher's and fishmonger's shops of the Meatpacking District, south of Vesterbro's Sønder Boulevard, started being regenerated as restaurants. It's now a buzzy spot and a foody hub. The newest restaurant in the area is Kul ((website hidden), which champions the area's gritty look (the buildings are listed so all establishments have white bathroom tiles on the walls and terracotta floors) but has a more international culinary outlook. Influenced by Californian-style cooking, chef-founders Henrik Jyrk and Christian Mortensen gambled on a bit of a local backlash to the now ubiquitous Nordic cooking style to create a menu that spans the globe – ribs with kimchee, for example, or Ibérico ham with tempura squid. Dinner including wine from around £42 a head.
8. For something a little more refined, head back to Vesterbrogade and Lidkoeb ((website hidden)), a new sibling to the city's famous Ruby cocktail bar (in the city centre). Here, a former apothecary's shop has been transformed into an elegant three-floor drinking den. The downstairs, with leather banquettes and floor-to-ceiling arched windows, is for being seen sipping cocktails such as the håndslag – a mix of cachaça, pineapple syrup, fresh lime and celery bitters (£12); the middle floor has more of a living room feel, and up top is a Chesterfield- and rug-swathed den under the eaves for whisky lovers. It's an immaculate take on a late-night drinking spot.
Building rules says that you have to be quiet around 11 pm at the latest - that means no loud music and such.
Otherwise we generally rely on our guests' common sense and decency to leave the apartment as they received it. Cleaning fees can be arranged.
There is one double bed in the bedroom, and there is a quite big sofa in the livingroom.
Smoking is allowed on the balcony.
We had a great stay in Copenhaguen. We can only thank Daniel and Nina for welcoming us in their appartment. Our booking was very last minute and they managed to arrange everything in very short notice. The house is very clean, well decorated and it really gives you the feeling to be at home. You feel like a local in Copenhagen. The neighbourhood is great, full of nice restaurants and shops, and very well located! We recomend Daniel's and Nina's apartment to anyone planning on visiting Copenhagen. Thanks again!!
This was my first experience of Airbnb and first time in Copenhagen. Daniel's apartment was very comfortable for me. I found all I needed. The location is just perfect and everything is reachable afoot. Daniel and Nina were very helpful and friendly. The balcony is great if you smoke and for morning coffee. I can recommend to stay in Daniel's apartment without any doubt.
Daniel was a fantastic host, great communication ahead of my arrival, the booking was very last minute so I was extremely grateful that Daniel and Nina were willing to accommodate.
When I arrived Daniel was very friendly and made clear that he was available should I need anything during my stay. Maps and recommendations had been left for us which is all we needed to have a good time.
The flat was great, clean, tidy and very cool. Fantastic location, right in the heart of Vesterbro surround by awesome restaurants and bars.
We had a great time and would recommend Daniel and Nina's place if you wanted to experience living in real Copenhagen.
Kim and Oli :)
Very easy and quick to correspond with Daniel, and a good stay. The neighborhood was very interesting, a bit reminiscent of East Village in Manhattan. The upper part (close to central station) of Istedgade is sketchy so I would recommend walking on Vesterbrogade. You do get to see the men's center on Istedgade from the series Bron/Broen if you are a fan of the show though. Good transport options from the flat, whether staying in the city or taking trips away. The photos don't show the balcony - it's great. Note that the kids in the inner courtyard playground can be very noisy until quite late at night but I got used to it after a few days.
Daniel and Nina's home is lovely. We didn't get to meet Daniel, but Nina set us up and was very friendly + helpful. The apartment is very spacious, excellent balcony, super bright/airy, all working utilities, and located in a fun + incredibly safe part of town. It's also within walking distance to the central train station (among other spots). Definitely recommend this location to other travelers/ tourists.
Such a lovely stay. The apartment was bright, airy and spacious and all the appliances behaved nicely:) There is laundry with a dryer and a newly added balcony. I went there seeking a place to write and there were multiple places to park myself (a large farm house table in the living, the balcony, and a large couch). Great little neighborhood. It is up on the 5th floor with no elevator - but apartments in that area rarely have elevators. Host was lovely and very responsive on email. I want to go back!
The reservation was canceled 56 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We have been building a very nice home for ourselves the last couple of years.
Nina is an entrepreneur making the best icecream in northern Europe and Daniel is a project manager working with prevention of gang related crime around Copenhagen, and we love what we do :)
Daniel plays music as a hobby, which is why there are a couple of instruments in our apartment, and Nina is a part-time photographer.
We put a lot of love into our place, and we hope that people from AirBnB will love it as much as we do :)
Daniel & Nina.
