With an industrial structure complemented by a Modernist renovation, this minimalist, bright loft is the ultimate choice for those looking to explore the city after dark. Start your day with a cup of coffee on the windowsill bench and then head out a café in hip Frederiksberg. After a night out in the adjacent Meatpacking District, famous for its selection of food joints, bars and clubs, you’ll come home to an artfully decorated lounge and dining room with an edgy aesthetic. As with most Copenhagen residences, the bathroom is pretty tight, making it an ideal stay for a solo traveller or a couple.

This historic home was built in the 19th century to provide housing for local workers at the shipyards, and guests get a rare opportunity to experience a true example of Copenhagen family life here, as these properties are usually handed down through families and rarely come onto the housing market.

Located close to central Copenhagen near the chic neighbourhood of Nørrebro and family-friendly Østerbro, the apartment is surrounded by many shops, restaurants, cafés and galleries.
