Brøndby consists of three cities: Brøndbyvester (west), Brøndbyøster (east) and to the south Brøndby Strand.

Brøndbyvester is the "original" Brøndby and has several old farmhouses, but mostly consists of single family houses - this is a typical middle-class Danish suburb. Brøndby's name in Danish combines both "water well" and "town".

Brøndbyøster is east of the big intersection that parts the three different Brøndbys. (Brøndby Strand Projects '93[1][permanent dead link]), this part of the city has many older people and immigrants.

Brøndby Strand is a mix of those two cities. There are lot of single-family houses and 12 high-rise residential estates. It is the only area in Denmark where more than 50 percent of the population aren't Danish-born, nor of Danish descent.[1] These four neighborhoods are also known as the Southside or Southcoast Copenhagen.

Brøndby is the home of Brøndby IF, a football club.
