Easter lunch from all over the world

Look for Ravnsborggade, Blågårdsgade and Sjællandsgade near the Assistents Cemetery. Here, you can shop food from the Danish/French kitchen of vegetarian meals and small meals with steaks and seafood in a perhaps not obvious but delicious combination.
In addition, you will find lots of small and larger kebab places along Nørrebrogade. Grab a delicious dürüm to enjoy at one of the many outdoor benches, while looking at the thousands of cyclists who bike to and from the city on this bike highway. Feel the atmosphere that makes you part of Nørrebro.

Get your coffee in Nørrebro

Nørrebro is known for its cosy coffee shops. Drop by ‘Røde Roses Kaffebar’ on Baldur’s Square to get jazz from the gramophone and a good cup of coffee. Another little cosy place to stop by is Møllegade 3, where you can relax or get a coffee ‘to go’ for extra energy for your trip. The busy city is living its own life while you are enjoying the coffee beans in a cosy coffee shop in Nørrebro.

The stylish playgrounds on Nørrebro

For families with children, it is ideal to look at the faubourg at Easter. Here, you will find plenty of opportunities to let your children play in fun and different playgrounds. For instance, you can visit the district around Nørrebro like Stefansgade and Jægersborggade. The enclosed playground in Nørrebro Park is a paradise with everything from the usual playground equipment, such as swings, sandboxes and slides, to a boat and an ‘aircraft wreckage’, that invites to climbing and fun. In summer, when temperature reaches 30 degrees centigrade, the area is used for sports and fun with water for the local people to be cooled down – to the great delight of both adults and children. As a parent, you can coordinate the visit with a ‘to go’ coffee or a takeaway oat porridge with roasted almonds, fresh apples and homemade caramel sauce from the popular porridge bar “Grød” in Jægersborggade. Also, take a walk down the street for a true Nørrebro shopping experience. There are plenty of small unique shops in this creative district.
