Vesterbro has seen a huge change in the last 50 years. From a worn out working class neighborhood with a red light district to becoming the most hip part of the city. Several new quirky entrepreneurships and ideas like craft breweries, special cafés, galleries, burger joints, hip bars etc. Worth a visit!
