Description

The Copenhagen tour starts at the city's central station before venturing into what used to be the roughest neighborhood in town. This was the world's most famous red light district in the 1960's when Denmark was the first country to legalize pornography, attracting curious visitors from around the globe. A few of those original shops still exist today, so no surprise that Vesterbro not only was, but still is, the center of street prostitution in Denmark. In the 1970's and 80's, drug addicts, street prostitutes, tattoo shops, and shady dive bars dominated the neighborhood. But wandering the streets today, travelers can see first-hand how gentrification can change a place.

Start the tour with a visit to one of the few 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 neighbourhood all their life.

From there, proceed to one of the most famous streets in Denmark and hear stories of the Vesterbro of yesteryear. This will take us to 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 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 neighbourhood. You will also be introduced to one of our local must-try breakfast secrets. 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.
