The 5 most charming neighbourhoods to explore in Copenhagen

1) Brumleby

The miniature yellow city of Bromley, built in the 1850s, is an early example of Danish social housing. Founded by a group of physicians during the Copenhagen cholera epidemic of 1853, Brumleby is now protected as a historic city landmark. Tip: this is still an active (and friendly) community, so when you visit Brumleby, remember to respect the residents’ privacy.
