C WHERE TO GO – WHAT TO SEE SHOPPING NØRREBRO In the 1760s Nørrebro was mostly fields and farmland, in the 1800s it was a popular place to live for well-off families, in the 1900s it was a working-class neighbourhood and today it is a multicultural hot spot full of up-coming designers shops, fun second hand stores, an abundance of niche shops, cozy cafés and restaurants of any kind at all price levels from your local etnic to a Michelin star. Nørrebro also has a vibrant nightlife with young, trendy cafés packed to the ceiling during weekends. Nørrebro’s renaissance began in the area around Sankt Hans Torv which buzzes with life especially in summer when the cafés move their tables and chairs out onto the square to create a lively atmosphere. Nearby Elmegade is great for shopping and if you are into antiques Ravnsborggade is worth a visit. You can also take a stroll down Blågårdsgade or visit Jægersborggade - a small street hosting a wealth of interesting 85 shops. Nørrebro is also home to an amazing historic cemetery where among others the famous writers H.C. Andersen and Soeren Kirkegaard are buried. Look for the big yellow wall and go inside Assistens Kirkegaard which in summer is used as a park by many of the locals tanning amongst graveyards and tombstones.
