A walk to the old working class area of Nørrebro and the beautiful lakes

3 km walk to the old working class area of Nørrebro, the beautiful lakes and the Assistens Cemetery.

From Nørreport Train station just follow the Frederiksborggade. On your left hand will see Torvehallerne, and as they say about them self

"It is not a supermarket – it is a super market. At Torvehallerne in Copenhagen, you will find over 60 stands selling everything from fresh fish and meat to gourmet chocolate and exotic spices, as well as small places where you can have a quick bite to eat."

Expensive, but worth visiting.

Continue to the bridge Queen Louise's Bridge, which connects inner Copenhagen and Nørrebro. The Queen Louise's Bridges was built in 1887 and went through a bit of a transformation when the road was narrowed in favour of wider sidewalks and bike paths.

This resulted in significantly reduced car traffic and increased bicycle traffic.

The transformation did not only affect cars and bikes, because wider sidewalks also turned the sunny side of Queen Louise's Bridge into a hip and popular hangout for many Copenhageners.

The bridge ended up getting more benches than originally planned due to people's need to soak up the sun and hang out on the bridge.

The benches are not the only places that are occupied by locals. The railing and the sidewalk are also popular hangouts when the sun hits the lakes. Here you can meet up with friends, listen to music, talk or enjoy a cold beer.

Walk futher, and will see the yellow wall. Behind is Assistens Cemetery, burial ground, green oasis, cultural treasury.
Welcome to Denmark's best known cemetery, Assistens in Copenhagen, the final resting place of famous Danes, like fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen and philosopher Søren Kierkegaard.

For more than 250 years, the people of Copenhagen have buried their dead - known and unknown - at Assistens Kirkegård cemetery. Today the cemetery is one of the Nørrebro area's most interesting and lush green oases, where both locals and visitors go for a stroll.

Assistens Kirkegård cemetery in Copenhagen exudes both big and small stories that represent the dead. Here, you will see thousands of gravestones of notable people from the last centuries of Danish history - Hans Christian Andersen and Søren Kierkegaard being the most famous.

But also the graves of people like physicists H. C. Ørsted and Niels Bohr and - closer to our own time - the poet Michael Strunge and singer Natasja Saad make Assistens an interesting place to visit.

But before you enter the cementary you have the Pub "Det Rene glas" on the corner. The name means The Clean Glass, because it was the first pub in Copenhagen who cleaned the glass after each customer. Today it is one of the last old fashion pubs in the city, you can smoke there and have a chep beer.

Continue, and after you have pass Nørrebro station, you go to the left on Nordre Fasanvej. 100 meters down on your right hand, you will see Harrys Place. Time for a sausage!!

Take the bus 350S og 5C back to Norreport. Free ride if you have CityPass or Copanhagen Card
