Explore the Vesterbro district at night with its gourmet food, brew movement and get introduced to the area
Vesterbro is the area where the central station in Copenhagen is and beyond. However, most people leave with the impression that it is all about Tivoli, hotels - and the red light district! But beyond that, there is a thriving community of students, artists and everyday people with small galleries, independent design stores, a renovated Meat packing district and a wealth of nice cafés. And hipsters (recently crowned as the fourth most hipster area in the world by Thrillist).
On this evening tour we will focus on the thriving food and beverage scene, but also give you an introduction to this fascinating part of Copenhagen.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: I can either pick you up at your hotel, or we'll meet at the central station (in the middle, "under the clock")
End location: I can leave you at your hotel, or you might want to continue exploring Vesterbro...
Duration: 2 hours
The tour is set to 2 hours, but if we need to add a little because of transport from hotel, longer dinner, etc, I am not too strict on that (after all, this is not only my job but also my hobby!).
If you can, please ask ahead of time for this tour as I also fill out my evening calender - but if you are on short notice, write me and I'll do my best to be able to be there. Also if it appears that I am busy since it might be a day thing that keeps my calendar busy.
Things are within walking distance on Vesterbro, so the best way is to walk there. If we are meeting outside the Vesterbro district, we should consider local transportation to get us there.

Estimated Local Cash Needed
400 dkk - You don't really need any local cash as all things can be paid for by international credit cards (Visa, Mastercard but not always American Express), or worst case, I pay and you pay me back in your currency.
Food and drinks of this tour is not included, and varies according to your wishes. Vesterbro tends to be cheaper than the inner district of Copenhagen, but Danish prices are high. You decide on the level as we go.

This was our second tour with Jens, and we enjoyed it as much as the first. He took us on a great tour of the Vesterboro neighborhood as well as some iconic beer pubs, including Mikkelar. We really enjoyed our time with him.
