Vesterbro is where the Copenhageners go to see real life in all its many shapes. We start our West End gourmet tour at Vesterbros Torv right in front of the church.. From here we will walk through the most interesting and coming up areas of Copenhagen. Including previously mentioned meatpacking district and vesterbro – a new center of Copenhagen’s cultural life. We will discuss their development, all the way from rough and rowdy origins of the area, to the current paradise for the young, the edgy and the artistic.
