VESTER KOPI

Når man kommer til fods fra Sønderboulevard og man i forårssolen glider ind igennem Elefantporten og begiver sig ned ad Pasteur Allé, bliver man grebet af områdets historiske vingesus, mægtighed og ydmyghed. Det her er en af Danmarks mest kendte arbejdspladser og tidligere bosted for arbejdere på Carlsberg. Her er der knoklet for livet, der var tryk på hverdagen for at overleve, da Carlsberg blev etableret.Området emmer stadig af tryk på, men på en helt anden moderne måde. Det er her Vester Kopi´s trykkeri ligger.
