The ethnically diverse population clearly shows in the vast selection of Arabic grocery stores, exotic produce and sidewalk shawarma joints. But Nordvest also holds some other really good places to satisfy your hunger and thirst for the local Copenhagen experience.
These places are clearly mostly frequented by the locals but deserve a warm recommendation.
Up until the 1980’s, Nordvest was known for a high amount of low-priced housing where many newcomers to Copenhagen settled down. From other countries and young students from other parts of Denmark looking for affordable flats. That and a lot of industry.
And as the factories closed down and industry moved out, the rustic industrial buildings have made space for all sorts of creativity. Like the mobile community hops farm, Byhumle, for instance. In a former industrial parking lot local volunteers produce crops which are then made into beer at another Nordhavn gem – the nearby brewery Flying Couch.
