Copenhagen Local Walks - NØRREBRO
Unlock the secret tales of Nørrebro, one of Scandinavia’s most densely populated places with more than 80,000 people living in just 4,1 km2 with Copenhagen Local Walks formerly known as Know Your 'Bro.
Originally a working-class area, Nørrebro is today a very young neighbourhood with almost 50 per cent of inhabitants being under the age of 29. Regardless of time and day, the streets are vibrant and full of life.
Over time, Nørrebro has undergone extensive development and urban renewal, however not always by the wishes of locals. The story of Nørrebro is therefore also the story of locals and their struggle to be heard. Over the decades, numerous protests and demonstrations have taken place in the streets and around public buildings, parks and squares with locals demanding autonomy. Local user-controlled playgrounds and buildings have also been closed over the years. Others have survived through local persistence and courage, making Nørrebro a symbol of the people’s will to influence the place they live in.
Spots: Visit the final resting place of famous Danes such as Hans Christian Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard and Niels Bohr in Assistens Cemetery, hang out with locals at Dronning Louises Bro (Danish for Queen Louise’s Bridge) and get the chance to enjoy mouth-watering delicious shawarmas.
