Last week the sun was shining and it was the perfect day to get out and go for a walk.  Jack and I headed to Frederiksberg, one of our favorite parts of the city because it has a very French feel to it with wide tree lined streets, parks, shops, and cute little restaurants.  This area is quite unique because it is like a piece of pie coming away from Copenhagen’s city center, sandwiched between Vesterbo and Nørrebro, two other neighborhoods with their own very distinct characteristics.  But Frederiksberg is technically not part of Copenhagen and has it’s own city council.  Either way, it is one of the most sought after areas in and around Copenhagen to live and I think when you join us for a walking tour of Frederiksberg you will definitely see why!

Valentina Fussell Frederiksberg-5 The luscious gardens are one of my favorite parts of this area! Roses and peonies are in bloom right now and you can literally smell them as you walk by!

Valentina Fussell Frederiksberg-11 How gorgeous are these hydrangea?  They are in bloom all over the city as well in June and July.

Valentina Fussell Frederiksberg-46 Pop into Gestus for a coffee and a pastry. You can sit down inside or out, but best of all, they offer coffee to go if you are wanting to see more of the city without stopping.

Valentina Fussell Frederiksberg-055 Head down Værnedamsvej, a road that connects you back to Frederiksberg through Vesterbro.  This street is packed with great design shops, one of my favorite florists, and Granola, a definite favorite of locals and visitors!

Now head back up through Frederiksberg via Gammel Kongevej, one of the best shopping streets in the Copenhagen area.  There are many local shops to choose from and you could easily spend an entire day just exploring this street!

We hope you enjoyed joining us for our little Walking Tour of Frederiksberg!  We had to head out to pick up the kids after lunch, but this area could easily be explored all day long.  We suggest grabbing an afternoon coffee, and maybe even some sandwiches from Meyers Deli and heading back to the park for an evening picnic!
