Nørrebro is Copenhagen's multicultural district

Nørrebro: colourful, casual and young at heart

Over the last couple of decades Nørrebro has evolved into one of Copenhagen’s hottest quarters with a multicultural mix and an influx of young locals.

Here you will find trendy bars and clothing shops next door to dodgy dive bars and cheap kebab places. If you are into small design shops, head for the streets Elmegade or Jægersborggade. And if you need a break, hangout like the locals at Assistens Cemetary.

Sankt Hans Torv square is considered the center of Nørrebro and boasts a wide range of both shops, cafés and restaurants, including the only Thai Michelin restaurant in the world, Kiin Kiin.
