Exploring the City – Vibeke Vang

As the majority of homes in central Copenhagen are in apartment buildings, I love to explore the little pockets of row houses dotted around the city and they all have a bit of special history associated with them. I was recently in Nørrebro visiting my husband’s workplace and I stumbled upon another small area of row houses called Vibeke Vang in the Haraldsgade area.vibekevang4The houses were build in 1926  as social housing to enable workers to be more self sufficient in where they lived and gave a healthy environment. The homes are now in private ownership. There area is a little more run down in parts than other row house neighbourhoods such as the Potato Rows and Brumleby but still an interesting change from the typical Copenhagen apartment buildings.vibekevang3
