While visiting Copenhagen, many tourists easily get “stuck” in the very center of the city. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of things to see and do there, too, but disregarding the surrounding neighborhoods is like eating a toast without the jam -works, but you’d feel like “is this really all there is to it?”
Take a day trip to Vesterbro, the neighborhood of young families, students and extraordinaires. Don’t let the beginning of the area fool you, there’s a lot more to Vesterbro than the Red Light -district at the beginning of Istedgade and the main railway station. Take down Vesterbrogade, away from the center, and have a brunch or a dinner at Von Fressen.
You’ll notice from the very first look at the place, that this is a spot where people come to relax, have a lunch perhaps, enjoy the company of their friends. Especially when the cold autumn air starts to roll in, a cup of their extraordinary, awesome hot chocolate, enjoyed while sitting in one of the plush couches starts to sound heavenly. As they’re open till 04:00 on weekends, you might even feel tempted to pop by for one of their signature cocktails or a beer from the local breweries. Thursdays and weekends they even sometimes have live music!
When you’re done with your dining, a perfect way to continue the relaxed meal is to go for a walk in the nearby park of Søndermarken, just continue Vesterbrogade up!
