Prostitution Laws in Copenhagen
Prostitution in Denmark was decriminalised in 1999 and sex work is entirely legal in the country. It is reported that one in six men in Denmark have paid for sex and it’s not hard to see why they have when you consider that there are over 400 brothels in the country.
Strictly speaking, brothels are a grey area of the law as profiting from the sex work of another individual (or individuals) is illegal. The trade is considered above board if the fees for sex work go direct to the prostitute and the room service fees are charged separately (see Brothels, below)

Sex in Copenhagen
Copenhagen has its own red-light district which is situated behind the central rail station on the streets around Skelbækgade, Istedgade, and Halmtorvet. Known as Vesterbo, the area is not as obvious as the red-light areas of Amsterdam or the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. However, the area gets busy during the weekends and turns into a hot spot for stag dos most weeknights.
Though not, strictly speaking, brothels, these clubs are, in fact, used as brothels. Yes, we said it wasn’t legal in our Sex in Denmark guide but actually the law prohibits profiting from running a brothel so as long as the administration is kept separate, the clubs are really just running a by-the-hour hotel service for independent escorts.
You can find out more about the best brothels in Copenhagen in our separate guide.
The popular voyeur and swinging activity of dogging has become quite popular of late in Denmark and there are places around Copenhagen where you can catch some action. Though there are no guarantees of when, reports suggest the Amager Strandpark beach is a popular hotspot.
