      Frequently referred to as the world’s most liveable city, Copenhagen’s neighbourhoods lets you explore the Danish way of living in four unique ways.

      Where Frederiksberg offers a classic and chic atmosphere with independent shops and green areas, Vesterbro has become the hippest place in town with vintage shops, diverse restaurants and a buzzling night life.

      Closer to the vibe in Frederiksberg but still its own, you have Østerbro offering ‘hygge’ cafes within a short distance from the sea and lakes of Copenhagen. Lastly, step into Copenhagen’s multicultural, Nørrebro, with a vibrant atmosphere and some of the city’s best hang out spots.
