Itinerary

Your Copenhagen tour starts at the city’s central station before venturing into what used to be the roughest neighborhood in town. As the world’s most famous red light district of the 60s, Vesterbro quickly made a name for itself, which brought with it drug addicts, street prostitutes, tattoo shops, as well as shady dive bars. Wandering the streets today, though, you’ll see first-hand how gentrification can change a place.

We will start the tour with a visit to one of the few traditional bodegas still standing that has not been completely overrun by newcomers to the area. Here we will enjoy a beer in a familiar Danish atmosphere and talk about its importance for the locals who have lived in the neighborhood all their life.

From there, we will make our way up one of the most famous streets in Denmark, where you will hear stories of the Vesterbro of the past. This will take us into a quiet street where you will hear a drama-filled story of two siblings who had a nag for beer, which they turned into a hugely popular beer brand that resonates so well with the city’s contemporary way of life.

As we move on, you will hear about and experience one of the city’s amazing parks and its importance to the neighborhood, as well as be introduced to one of our local breakfast secrets that you just must try. We will end the tour at one of the abovementioned brothers’ newest additions to the Copenhagen bar scene: a Danish-Texan brewpub and restaurant that has taken Copenhagen by storm. Stay as long as you like, or, if you feel like exploring further, your guide will be happy to share dinner recommendations — there are many excellent places just around the corner.
