Over the last couple of decades Nørrebro has evolved from being a working class area into one of the city’s hottest quarters. If you are planning a night out or if want to shop for clothes, exotic food, bric-a-brac or antiques – the multicultural Nørrebro is the place to be.
Until a few decades ago Nørrebro housed one of the largest group of the Copenhagen working class. Even though the area today is one of Copenhagen’s coolest areas, the neighborhood hasn’t lost its edge – it’s still diverse, colorful and hip.With a multicultural mix, an influx of young, hip inhabitants as well as popular attractions like the historic cemetery Assistens Kirkegård (resting place of the fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen and the philosopher Søren Kirkegaard) Nørrebro is still developing. Nørrebro’s ‘renaissance’ began in the area around Skt. Hans Torv, where today you find plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and nightlife in the cosy, narrow streets surrounding the square.
