The story of Kødbyen

The combination of culture, food and music has made Kødbyen one of Copenhagen's absolute favorite go-to urban areas. It is now no longer the hub of meat production, but instead food festivals, flea markets and cultural events. Every little Friday, Friday and Saturday, young, style-conscious Copenhageners flock to Kødbyen’s delicate nightclubs, where the music often draws threads back to the nostalgia of the 80s.

Kødbyen consists of resp. The White, the Gray and the Brown Meat City, depending on the color of the buildings.

The urban area has its origins in the late 19th century, as a central part of Denmark's industrial flourishing. At that time, Kødbyen was far from the center of Copenhagen, but was to be the hub for meat production in the Copenhagen area via a nearby railway. In fact, Kødbyen was pr. law the only place where slaughter had to take place in Copenhagen for many decades.

But from the 1930s, meat production was moved outside Copenhagen, when the capital during industrialization had had such strong growth that Kødbyen was no longer far from the center of Copenhagen, but was an integral part of the capital. Kødbyen’s premises were therefore rented out to various smaller companies, until the aforementioned facelift of Vesterbro was initiated in the mid-1990s. After the turn of the century, Kødbyen was designated as one of the 25 national, industrial monuments worthy of preservation, with special significance for Denmark's architectural cultural history.

When the British design magazine Wallpaper named Copenhagen the best city in the world in 2016, Kødbyen was also highlighted as one of the factors that made up the result with good restaurants, bars and clubs and a neighborhood that has its own character. Meat City is thus recognized around the globe, and there are many exciting dining experiences to explore - even with 1/3 cut of the price when you order through Early Bird.
