Highlights
  • Insider's tales of the history of the Vesterbro neighborhood
  • Stop at the only local establishments dating back from the early days
  • Craft beer tasting of locally produced brews
  • Walk away with recommendations for your independent explorations
What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group of just 12 people at Copenhagen's central train station, an easy walk to the Vesterbro neighborhood. Set off on foot as your guide provides commentary on the neighborhood, which was a vice-filled red-light district in the 1960s. See for yourself how it has changed—now chock-full of trendy restaurants, bars, and boutiques. Stop at one of the bodegas dating back from the early days, still standing and very important to the locals. Have a beer there and then make your way up one of the most famous streets in Denmark, hearing tales and folklore of the neighborhood—things you probably wouldn't learn if you were exploring on your own. Say goodbye to your guide and group, but not without some recommendations on where to explore further in the neighborhood.
