Briefly about the Meatpacking District 

The Meatpacking District in Vesterbro is a historical gem located behind the Central Station. For over 100 years, it has been the heart of Copenhagen's food industry. 

The Meatpacking District consists of three generations of buildings, constructed as municipal facilities to ensure hygiene and fresh meat for the city's residents. The City of Copenhagen has been the driving force behind its development, and today they continue to oversee its daily operations. 

From the Brown Meatpacking District, transformed into a cultural center in the 1990s, to the White Meatpacking District where creative industries, restaurants, nightclubs, and food production coexist, the Meatpacking District has evolved into an exciting and dynamic area that attracts attention both nationally and internationally. 

Today, the area thrives with a vibrant nightlife, new businesses, art galleries, and a rich selection of culinary experiences. 

The White and Brown Meatpacking Districts have been designated as one of 25 national industrial heritage sites, and are therefore protected under the Conservation Act, overseen by the conservation authority, the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces.
