The Zealand region

Copenhagen (Kobenhavn) lies on Zealand, the largest of the Danish islands. It is one of the most appealing of capitals and seaports in Europe, with quays and canals penetrating the centre. Copenhagen has a well-preserved old quarter called the Inner Town, animated by a Renaissance spirit with a northern touch. Twisted spires and copper spires shape the skyline. There are narrow, winding streets and ancient, timbered houses. This Inner Town is no museum, but the living city centre, with the main shops, the university of Copenhagen ,the Parliament, and a sparkling Latin Quarter. The Inner town located in the triangle of the streets Vester Voldgade Nørre Volgade and Gammel strand up to the Kongens Nytorv square, from there you can visit the famous Nyhavn, one of the main attractions of the city, Nyhavn is picturesque quarter of bars and restaurants in a small quay lined by old wooden houses, further on the Marble Church, the Palace and the Port is just a few minutes walk. In Kongens Nytorv you will find the famous Hotel d'Angleterre ,the Opera House and the famous department store Magazin du Nord. Strøget is the main axis between the Inner Town and the principal shopping street of Copenhagen. All this and the rest of the city is fused by a rich and good-tempered restaurant and boulevard life. In Amagerstorv you will find the famous design shop Illums Bolighus while you can taste famous Danish pastry and coffee at Cafe Europa and Cafe Norden. Around the area of the University there are many restaurants that you can eat cheap as much as you want during the buffet time with one set price. Whilst in Copenhagen you have a good chance to visit Malmo in Sweden using the train or car. The Oresund bridge, a masterpiece of engineering connects since 2000 Copenhagen with Sweden.

The statue of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid near the harbour is probably the most famous landmark of Copenhagen. Tivoli, the amusement park, is another of the main attractions in Copenhagen, Tivoli contains restaurants, cafes, and a concert hall. The Copenhagen Zoo, in Frederiksberg, is the biggest in Scandinavia and is worth visiting. Among the better known old buildings are the rococo Amalienborg Royal Palace, the baroque Academy of Fine Arts (in Charlottenborg), and the Renaissance building of the former Stock Exchange . Good examples of modern buildings are the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, the State Radio House, the Grundtvig Church, the Fisketorvet shopping Center and the town halls of the boroughs of Frederiksberg and Holte. Copenhagen Town Hall is a magnificent reproduction of medieval civic architecture built in the 1890's.

An unrivalled collection of neoclassical sculpture is to be seen in the museum devoted to the works of the 19th century Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen. Modern Danish and other Scandinavian art is on exhibition at the Glyptoteket. The National Museum is particularly strong in old Norse collections and Arctic ethnography.

Danish design is a byword in contemporary applied art, and its products are the characteristic wares of Copenhagen shops. The Danes specialize in furniture, their designers are brilliant and their cabinet-makers both skilled and creative. Other Danish products in the best contemporary style are ceramics, stainless steel, and silverware.

Around Copenhagen there is some pretty country. The Deer Park at Klarnpenborg and the Rude Forest at Holtc are worth visiting. So, too, are the resorts along the Sound, particularly Vedbaek and Rungsted, with heir little yachting harbours.

Vesterbro

Vesterbro was originally the name of the paved country road that led into the city center from the west. Few country roads in those days were paved, but the amount of traffic into the capital necessitated it.

Until 1853 after the cholera epidemic that had hit Copenhagen, there had been a "no build" zone outside Copenhagen's old part of town, the part now known as the Inner City or Indre By. This Demarcation Line (Demarkationslinien) indicated an area beyond the city's century's old defense wall system where Copenhagen's defense forces could strike the enemy unhindered.

Until then there was little development outside the center of the city, except with special permission. Even though much of the area was used as grazing land, by the 1780s there were approx. 1,000 inhabitants of the area, as well as a number of commercial enterprises (lumberyards, tobacco farm, several industrial buildings), and the house of the Royal Copenhagen Shooting Society and Danish Brotherhood (''Det kongelige kjøbenhavnske Skydeselskab og danske Broderskabs''). The society received permission to build outside the old city limits in the 1750s, and the building has housed the Copenhagen City Museum since 1956.

With the abolishment of the demarcation line in 1853, the dismantling of the old fortifications that ringed the center of town in the late 1860s, and the removal of the old entrance gates to the city in 1856, the population quickly spread out to the “as yet” undeveloped areas outside the center. This movement came first to the inner ring of areas outside the center: the Indre Østerbro ("Inner Østerbro"), the Indre Nørrebro ("Inner Nørrebro"), Vesterbro, and Frederiksberg.

At that time the name Vesterbro began being used for the entire area around the street named Vesterbro, and late in the 1800s the name of the street itself was changed to Vesterbrogade ("Vesterbro Street").

"Better than Hotel"

My stay at the apartment was great, with its location near the water leaves you feeling some peacefulness. Imagine taking a quick swim in the morning when you wake up. There was a mention in other re… More

"Great apartment; great location."

Like the other reviewers mentioned, the owner clearly lives in the apartment when it is not rented so his belongings are there. Assuming that doesn't trouble you, the apartement is fantastic. Copenhagen is a remarkable city which I highly recommend. Make sure you rent a bike. City center and Nyhaven (which is a must see), is only about a 10 minute bike ride (30 minute walk) from the apartment. The Danish people are warm and friendly and they all speak English.

"Better than expected"

Very nice modern Apartement, with a great view over the Copenhagen harbour. Very friendly contact, with no problems at all. Good infrastructure. A big Mall ca. 150m, bus station ca. 200m, Metro 300m, big bicycle rental 300m (good idea in Copenhagen!). Or we walked downtown (ca. 30 Min.). My girl friend an I (Germany) spent 6 wonderful days.

I was very unsure booking the apartemant, because a few things before booking were not very trustworthly. For example:

1. Bad quality of the photos at tripadvisor for a not cheap apartement (shooted with mobile phone?)
2. Not clear description of flat ("Rooms: 1 bedroom, 1 bathrooms of which 1 Family bathrooms"). That means no living room? Or living room = bed room? Where is the kitchen, descripted above?
3. Description: "Outdoors: Bicycles available". Asking before booking, he told us there are no bicycles available
4. No groundplan to understand the layout of the apartment.

The apartement have 1 living room with dinning area and kitchen, 1 bedroom (2 beds), 1 bathroom

It was a little bit unusual that many people from other flats could look in our flat. On the other hand we have had a kind of "big television" watching ourselves at the other apartements ;-)
This is no critic! Scandinavian people are more "free" than other cultures. We have had no problem with that situation but it is probably for other guests a little bit unusual looking at other people watching TV, having breakfast, etc.. We saw nothing x-rated! The bed room have outside curtains. If we left the bed room at night to go to the bathroom, we must pass the living room (no curtains). That doesn't disturb us or we didin't switched on the lights of the living room.

Why not 5 stars? A few minor things were not so perfect:

1. It was obviously that someone usually lives in the apartement. That is of course no problem, but it were better to communicate the situation before, because that means that we could use only around 10% of the wardrobe, private stuff were around (private bicycle, not for rental, Computer, etc.)

2. Obviously usually a dog is in the flat. There were a lot of dog hairs in the flat. Especially in the relax area on the big pillows. No problem for us but other people are maybe allergy sufferer. That should be communicated before booking.

3. Before leaving apartements on holiday we are always neaten the apartements, even if we paid for cleaning after visit. After we have had fold the bed sheets we saw that the mettresses were really a mess.

Anyway, at the end it was much better than expected!
