Denmark Instagrammed: Nørrebro

Nørrebro is a hip and colorful area in Copenhagen where designer shops and trendy Michelin starred restaurants are located next door to cheap shawarma places and dodgy bars. We asked Siw Aldershvile, a Nørrebro local, to share her thoughts on her favorite neighborhood in Copenhagen.

 Colorful, quirky #Norrebro

Superkilen in Norrebro, Copenhagen

"I love living in Nørrebro because of the combination of old classical buildings and a down to earth, young atmosphere. There is always something to do - always a new café to visit and a new shop to stop by. Both the people and the surroundings of Nørrebro are diverse and multicultural, which is very inspiring. The neighborhood is full of street art combined with old architecture and for an aesthetic mind there is a lot to see and experience. For example Superkilen (The Super Wedge), which is a colorful urban space with a lot of activities created by BIG Architects."

Michelin food at #Relae and sustainable shops

Jaegersborggade in Norrebro, Copenhagen

"Jægersborggade is a small street in Nørrebro filled with unique stores and cozy cafés, and a couple of times a year there are flea markets and street parties. Coffee Collective makes great coffee and has a tiny café here, which is perfect for a cup to-go. Meyers Bakery by Claus Meyer makes the best pastries, and Manfreds og Vin serves good and affordable food. Relæ in Jægersborggade is an amazing, organic restaurant with a Michelin star. The street is also home to some great shops and takes particular pride in handmade goods such as ceramics, chocolate, lamps, caramels, and jewelry. Visit My Favorite Things for organic skin care and Tricotage for clothes made from sustainable materials."
