This small quarter also known as the southwest quarter is situated in southwest Copenhagen, surrounded by motorways and railways.
Originally designed as a purpose-built working-class district, most of its three to five-storey buildings date back to the 1920s-1950s.
Almost all the flats have only two rooms and this is why numerous pensioners and singles live here. It is the poorest area of Copenhagen and has a high concentration of people with social problems.
However, many associations and clubs have also been founded in the neighbourhood, creating a small and strong community network. Due to this mix of positive and negative, the area became the focus of an urban regeneration project in 1997.
