Where should I buy a flat in Copenhagen?
Now that you have been introduced to key important factors about buying property in Copenhagen, let us look at the many neighbourhoods you can settle in. Please read more below for an overview of the different districts and what they offer.
Vesterbro is very close to the city centre and can be reached within 5 minutes by bike. Its reputation as a hip and trendy neighbourhood with a laidback atmosphere has made it a trendy residential area. Vesterbro was formerly known as Copenhagen's red-light district but is now one of the most attractive districts to live in – and this shows in the real estate prices.
Østerbro is known for its green areas and housing the largest public park in Denmark, Fælledparken. Østerbro is located north of the city centre by the waterfront and within walking distance from the inner city. It is an attractive neighbourhood that is home to people and businesses. Østerbro is especially popular among families with children.
Known for being a multicultural area, Nørrebro is located just north of the inner city. Nørrebro has blossomed into a hip district popular enough to rival Vesterbro in trendiness. In addition to being a residential area, Nørrebro also offers plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars etc.
Amager is one of the newer neighbourhoods, as recently, more and more people have discovered the island's pleasant mix of nature and urban living. Amager is located on the south side of Copenhagen, and a large portion of the urban areas are integrated into Copenhagen, essentially making Amager an extension of the capital city. Amager offers both new and old apartments at varying prices.
One of the newer residential districts in Copenhagen. Formerly an industrial zone, Nordhavn is now a residential area with many waterfront buildings looking out towards Øresund.
A neighbourhood that offers both beautiful buildings and nature. Sydhavn is the perfect place to live if you want to distance yourself from the busy streets of inner Copenhagen but still wish to be close to the city.
An upcoming district, Carlsbergbyen, is a small neighbourhood located within Vesterbro. The area is named after the Carlsberg Brewery, which had its base for approximately 150 years. Carlsbergbyen offers modern buildings and buzzing business life.
To sum up, buying property in Copenhagen is roughly the same as buying property elsewhere in this country. Nevertheless, the little details make a big difference and failing to recognize them can impact the quality of your life in the short and long run. That is why Bomae exists – we are here to help.
