Nørrebro, Copenhagen

Nørrebro is the one area in Copenhagen that is constantly lively, even during the quiet hours – there’s always something going on, and there’s plenty to see. It’s the more interesting place to visit if you’re craving a little more than the typical tourist-attraction museums, parks, and older architecture you see all over European cities – and want to see where the young Copenhageners actually go to hang out. So if you’re all about cool vintage shops, street art, people-watching, skate parks, and bars, restaurants & cafes…this is the neighbourhood for you. And if you like taking photos like I do, there are lots of interesting little details on the streets worthy of a snapshot, as you’ll see below!

Happy New Year! Hope you had a good one, and that 2021 is off to a decent start (given the circumstances…)

I’m back with some images to share with you, of the coolest places around Copenhagen. There’s no better place to start than CopenHill, in my opinion!

CopenHill is an artificial ski slope/climbing center/hill build atop a waste management plant. It is located on Refshaleøen and is part of Copenhagen’s waste-to-energy initiatives. This project is truly, quintessentially ‘Copenhagen’ – it’s recreational, creative, architectural, “eco-friendly”, offers some of the city’s best views, and is a mainstay silhouette in the capital’s skyline. You can find out more about this amazing place here. In the meantime, let’s take a look at some of what CopenHill has to offer, from the perspective of my camera lens…

CopenHill by night

Please stay tuned for my next post on CopenHill, which will tell you what this recreational space is all about, with some incredible views from up top. For now I will show you what CopenHill looks like from a distance, around various spots in Refshaleøen. I must say these are some pretty surreal views – CopenHill makes for an amazing backdrop to some of the city’s most incredible spots.
