About this tour

Explore the area of Vesterbro and embrace the outdoors with 12 stops along the way. Meet your local guide right in front of the gates that used to be the entrance point to Copenhagen. This will be unlike any tour you have ever taken, it is informative about the joys and struggles of a neighbourhood’s past and present. Evidence remains today of the seedy nightlife that once gave Vesterbro such a sordid reputation. As the drug dealers and prostitutes moved out, students, artists and other creatives moved in, turning this formerly industrial district into Copenhagen’s new epicentre of cool. These days, dive bars sit happily next to offbeat boutiques and charming courtyard restaurants. The guide will lead you to several brown bars and craft beer bars. The combination of tasting/drinking beers and interacting with other people can be fun. Learning about the history of Vesterbro while enjoying a few beers was the perfect way to complete your afternoon.

Really fun and knowledgeable trip. Get to learn the history of Copenhagen’s past and present in the residential area packed with cool stories and a microbrewery to try any kind of beer that takes your fancy with a twist. Our guide Amelie was a great host and able to answer all questions.
