Vesterbro is the hipster area of Copenhagen so that means it is probably the hipsterest place on Earth (apart from Austin, Texas). You would expect beards, plaid shirts and lots of bikes. Well, you’ll find thousands of bikes, but that’s normal in Copenhagen. However, no abundance of beards or obvious trends in sight. Oh no. They are cooler than that. Subtle, relaxed and extremely polite. That’s Vesterbro.
Last weekend we stayed in the Hotel V Frederiksplein during our spontaneous Amsterdam getaway. And it was fantastic.
