My Perfect Day in Nørrebro:


Cycling Route:

https://goo.gl/maps/Qk7EK5vTVE25VJzMA

Donkey Republic Bike (download the app) Use CFWTJACK for 15% discount

Morning and breakfast – Brush my teeth (important), go get some breakfast in Ali’s Bageri I would recommend a sesame and cheese mix flatbread and order a humus. Walk along the cycle path and pick up a coffee in Coffee Collective and have a look and the most amazing play park in the city (it has a big wooden plane). Carry on walking down to Assistens Graveyard, but don’t worry, it’s the least creepy graveyard you will see. Explore around the graveyard trying to find the grave of Søren Kirkegaard, Niels Bohr and HC Anderson.

Midday and Lunch - Come out and grab something easy for lunch, and take it to Byoasen and eat my lunch watching the goats play in the park. Walk in and around the main street exploring and checking out the shops. Until ready to have a beer. Have a beer at Dronning Louises Bro, watching people cycle and walk by.

Dinner and Evening - Go back into Nørrebro and either have dinner at Jacob and Spices or Hidmona.

Finishing of the night with a drink in one of the many bars in Blågårsgade


FOOD:

Hos Kiloli Pizza $

Hooked $$

Morgenstedet $ (seems expensive from the menu but the portions are really big)

High End Food - Lola $$$ (its on the Michelin list, and goes by Nordic cuisine ethos.

UNKNOWN TO TOURIST ROUTES:


After you do our tour of Christianhavn, I recommend you do this route on a bicycle. You can rent a Donkey Republic Bike (download the app) Use CFWTJACK for 15% discount. Ride the bike through Christiania Town Centre, across Dyssebroen (bridge) then directly left after the bridge. Cycle along the lake and stop to admire all the strange buildings that the Christianites have built. These have been built mostly with re-used and natural materials, the creativity is very fun as they built with out permission, so creativity is possible. At the end of the path and lakes, to the left, is Noma with it’s Greenhouses (you’re not going to get a table). Take a right and head for Copenhill power station.

Get the lift up to the top of Copenhill and admire the views (check closing times). If you want to ski down the side of the power station you can rent ski’s at the bottom. Afterwards Cycle towards Reffen Food Market (closed in winter). Have Dinner and drinks from the many stalls at the food market, they also have gigs during the summer on the weekend, their website has the details.
