The Latin Quarter is a great place to wander around. It is full of secondhand bookshops and cafes and is the kind of place you could go to repeatedly and have a different experience each time. Be sure to stop by Grabrodretorv (Grey Friars' Square)...it's lovely.

This area around Our Lady's Square has been a centre for learning and thus use of the Latin language since the Middle Ages.Most of the student life has now been relocated to four new campuses but the area is still known for its lively atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed the magnificent St. Peter`s Chruch, which, together with the St. Peter's School... More

They call this area a city within a city. There are lots of cafes, coffee houses and boutiques of local artists. This is near the University. Although it is bustling with people, it doesn't feel touristy like in Stroeget. Put this on your list if you want to shop for unique goods.

If you're into small cosy Bistro's, specialized delicatessen shops , interesting non-chain clothing stores and vivid atmosphere -this is the area for you. Take your time stroll around and just be.

You're not going to miss much if you can't make it to the Latin Quarter. It's got some of the oldest buildings in the city and the super fun Rundetarn (Round Tower), but it's basically the Copenhagen version of the NYU neighborhood in New York.

Walking to the marble church? Stroll around the area for some unique shops and cuisine (again not Latin) but a different feel from other areas of Copenhagen.

I don't know why it's called Latin Quarter. There is nothing Latin about it at all. I mean, it's a fine area of the town, but just seems like any other Copenhagen Street. Certainly don't go out of your way to go there (like we did)

Much better than the much publicised Stroget where you encounter so many shops selling products familiar the western world over. In the Latin quarter you have much more chance of alighting on the quirky and being arrested by different sights.

Cosy narrow streets with old and new places for different subcultures, vintage shopping, new fashion (no couture or Burburry at all) and nice places to grab a original french crepe, a very good pizza slice or a veggie sandwich.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
