For many years Vesterbro was known as the rough and naughty neighbourhood. Istedgade was synonymous with porn, prostitution and pushers – and not a place for decent citizens to visit. Today Vesterbro still has got its edge. Promoted the most trendy, leading and creative in Copenhagen, Vesterbro is where cafés and fashion shops literally mushroom.

This applies especially to the western part of Istedgade and the quarter around Enghaveplads with its swarm of young and beautiful people.

Our route through Vesterbro shows the different faces of the quarter – as well the relaxed, laid-back, the ethnic and the trendsetting. The junctions of this route consist of a good ten carefully chosen fashion – and designer shops. In addition we would like to tell about our own experiences as former residents on Vesterbro. Who are the residents of today, and how the neighbourhood has changed over the years.

On our way we especially promise that you will get a fine shopping experience, but also that you have learned to feel the atmosphere and style of Vesterbro. As extra profits we shall of course share our knowledge of Copenhagen with you in order to provide you with a decent knowledge of the best eating places of the city, the hottest bars, the funkiest dance floors-and cosiest cafés.
