Visited for the swimming facilities and to see the magnificent circular 100 mtr pool. The centre offers swimming, diving, yoga, badminton, gymnastics to mention only a few. The only negative point I have is as someone else has said, the spiral staircase down from the changing rooms to the pools can be slippery when wet. Other than that I can... More

We made the mistake of visiting here last weekend. Husband, myself and our 16 year old daughter who is autistic and disabled. No disabled facilities at all and a very dangerous, dirty, slippery staircase to go down just to enter the pool. Very poor signage even for someone with a little understanding of the language. The main pool was far... More

Stayed at the hotel and that INCLUDED FULL ACCESS TO POOL AND BOWLING... Included in the ROOM!!! The pool area includes multiple sections, a round pool for swimmers (yes it's round and one 'turn' is 100M!), a pool for 'playing', a pool for diving that is 8M (approx 25 feet) deep and a pool for kids. Plan to spend at... More

I'm a swimmer, and have been to several other pools in Copenhagen, so thought I'd try DGI byen - it's 5 minutes walk from the Central Station. It's a bit more expensive than other pools, so I thought I'd see if it was worth it. Put simply, hygiene standards are by far the worst I've ever seen in Scandinavia. There... More

This hotel looked really nice in the pictures but the reality was different. We arrived quite early in the morning and were told to check in at 12, which was fine. We went for breakfast and came back, and the room still wasn't ready. Another half an hour of watching other guests check in, we were eventually able to check... More

The DGI-byen is a reasonably sized convention center, whose main advantage is its proximity to the central station. Floor marks ease the task of finding what we want in the convention center. I was interested in using its advertised spa, being a guest in its hotel, but the "spa" turned out to be a rather plain swimming hall. There is... More

I saw good recommendations on the Internet for this place, so I made a SPA reservation for me and my friend. We both should have the Wellness massage. She was satisfied, but said she will not return or recommend it. I was NOT satisfied. I've had plenty of massages, so I know the difference between a good and a bad... More

The swimming facilities in DGI-byen is something else. No 25 or 50 meter traditional pool, but a 100 m oval ring for swimming. Combined with a family pool, a jumping pool (with climbing wall) and other nice areas, it is a great place to come for all ages. Can be crowded (which is why I only give 4 "stars"), but... More

This is a terrific pool that visitors can use for a very reasonable per-day fee, immediately SW of Copenhagen Central Station. It's in the shape of a running track (yes, circular!), with a circumference of 100m...maintained at low 80'sF.....we had a blast swimming there this morning and it was not crowded at all at 8 AM on a Tuesday morning,...

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
