With its focus on the local community, its ultramodern architecture and diverse history, combined with a flurry of new openings within Copenhagen’s food scene, the Nørrebro district in Copenhagen tops Time Out Magazine’s ‘World’s Coolest Neighbourhoods 2021’ list.
Time Out revealed today that Nørrebro in Copenhagen tops its fourth annual World’s Coolest Neighbourhoods list: the cultural and culinary hotspots that are also leading the way as we begin to emerge from the pandemic.
Time Out’s annual list of the World’s Coolest Neighbourhoods has been collated since 2018, using the experiences and opinions of thousands of locals in hundreds of cities around the world via the annual Time Out Index survey, combined with the expertise of Time Out’s international network of local editors and city experts.
This year, more than 27,000 city-dwellers around the world were asked to nominate their city’s coolest, most underrated, and most culturally exciting neighbourhood. To create and rank the final list, Time Out’s local expert editors and writers rated neighbourhoods for great vibes, food, drink, nightlife, emerging culture, community spirit and resilience. They also considered sustainability and innovative green initiatives along with other quality-of-life factors that promote stress-free living.
Nørrebro is a diverse district where history meets ultramodern architecture on the northern side of Copenhagen’s lakes, and it truly has it all. In a city proudly known for its food and drink scene, Nørrebro has seen a flurry of new openings this year from bakeries to natural wine bars, all with a focus on local, seasonal (and often foraged) produce.
The neighbourhood was host to the city’s Pride march this summer, when WorldPride came to Copenhagen – the most significant LGBTQ+ event in the world. In a year where the community has been more important than ever, Nørrebro has no shortage of innovative initiatives including Nørrebrogade’s Car-Free Sunday where traffic is swapped for live music and flea markets, and Usynglige Stier (‘Invisible Paths’) a new, interactive art exhibition that brings fun and a splash of colour to the neighbourhood’s most vulnerable areas.
