Humleby (lit. "Hops Town") is an enclave of terraced houses situated next to the Carlsberg area in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark. They were built between 1885 and 1891 by the Worker's Building Society to provide healthy housing for the workers at Burmeister & Wain.

The area consists of 235 three storey houses. They were designed by Frederik Bøttger, the architect of the Building Society, who was inspired by English working-class housing.[1]
