Lovingly nicknamed ‘NørreBronx’ because of its past reputation as a rough district, Nørrebro is now one of the coolest and most densely populated areas in Denmark. Home to artists, foodies and a host of quirky start-ups, alternative culture thrives here amongst the 55 nationalities that call Nørrebro home.
After meeting you, we will head over to the bus stop to jump on the legendary Nørrebro ’5C’ bus and make our way to one of the most diverse parks in the world.
Resembling a mini ’World Expo,’ the park does a cracking job of celebrating the diversity of the local population, displaying artwork and artefacts inspired by countries around the world. Inspiringly, many of the items on display were chosen by the community of Nørrebro as symbols of their hertiage.
We will take time to explore a crashed airplane and have a go on the famous Japanese octopus slide as we traverse playgrounds, green spaces and plenty of cycle paths to get a taste of how the Danes like to have fun!
Copenhageners love to cycle and why not? The city is built for cyclists, with hundreds of kilometres of cycle lanes and a traffic light system that favours two wheels. Nørrebro is blissfully traffic-free and we will get a feel for the city’s proud cycling culture as we pound the pedestrianised streets of the district.
In short, make sure you bring your appetite for adventure as we indulge in this cultural exploration. We promise there will be plenty of opportunities to see and find the hip, the quaint and the unusual. Whether you’re buying a souvenir in one of the many quirky concept stores or you’re looking to discover inspiring and iconic works of art amongst the urban sprawl, Nørrebro has it covered.
After admiring the cool innovation and versatile resourcefulness of the Danes, our tour will end on an historic note at the attractive Assistens Cemetery, home to one of Denmark’s most famous sons, Hans Christian Andersen, writer of your favourite fairytales.
Copenhagen is a city of contrasts; experience them through the eyes of a local and get the most out of your stay in this exciting city.
