The district of Osterbro is situated just to the north of The Central Business District of Copenhagen. This is a part of the capital city of Denmark. If you are looking to spend your holidays in Osterbro, you will discover that there are many popular tourist attractions within this district itself, along with very quick and easy connections to the City Centre. Whilst there are hotels available throughout the area, over recent years, more and more people seem to be opting for self catering accommodation in Osterbro. This provides them with the chance to experience life from the perspective of one of the locals, it also allows visitors the freedom to come and go as they please and cook their own meals when they are looking to save some money by not having to eat out all of the time – which can be a little costly in the Danish capital!
