Well, it depends on what you’re after. Party people should check out Vesterbro – this is where the nightlife’s at, and you’ll be close to the best bars and clubs. Nørrebro and Østerbro are much calmer for families and the first is also a good budget bet. But, if you’re new here or want to fit a lot into a short break, stay in Indre By. This is the central part of the city and you’ll be near all the best sites.
