Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find
Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in
itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here
there are several fine theaters, from the experimental

specializes in transcribing the great London and New

years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find
