Hellerup is situated just north of Copenhagen, where Østerbrogade turns into the famous costal road Strandvejen, which means beach road.
In Hellerup the houses are as big and beautiful as the cars parked out front. This is where you will find the rich and glamorous Copenhageners and perhaps a lucky student or two who inherited their grandparents' flat.
The seaside suburb has a wonderful charm to it with luxury deli's, boutiques selling fine shoes and fashionable clothing and the newest trends in furniture design, arts and crafts.
Hellerup has also got a harbour and a kid-friendly beach - Hellerup Beach - with plenty of sand, few stones, shallow water, and a big playground with swings.
