Copenhagen is divided into a pack of very different yet equally loveable neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct vibes and looks. From gritty and industrial Refshaleøen to posh and classy Frederiksberg, Copenhagen has a neighbourhood to fit any liking. Dive into the Copenhagen localhood here or outside the city on a day trip off the beaten track.
Hitting up these three neighbourhoods is quintessential to any Copenhagen trip. The original residents areas are full of life, creativity and great dining.
Gritty and upcoming
Former industrial and working class areas are bustling with creative outposts and gastronomy these days. Head a bit off the beaten track, and the city completely opens up anew.
Copenhageners love to swim, dip, boat, bathe, paddle and dive into the canals and sea surrounding the city. The waters bring quality of life with it, and in these areas, it's right out the doorstep.
Each of the city's areas put so much on display, but the good ol' classics still have a special Copenhagen charm to offer.
