Get off the beaten path and discover an alternative side to Copenhagen. Visit the achingly hip area of Vesterbro, the Mndenes hjem homeless shelter and the red—not to mention the green—light districts, among other areas including the self-declared "Free State of Christiana." Discover and explore everything from untrammelled working-class districts to neighbourhoods crammed with bearded hipsters.
  • You'll start at
    Espresso House
    Vesterbrogade 2A, 1620 København V, Denmark
    Your Alternative Tour of Copenhagen starts in the center of the city at Espresso House Rådhuspladsen (Vesterbrogade 2A). Look for the SANDEMANs NEW Europe team with a red t-shirt and red umbrella.

Ashton was brilliant and gave us such a lot of information in an amusing way. We saw a lot of places we wouldn’t have explored and he was very entertaining! Strongly recommended!
