Sitting as a small sidestreet off Jagtvej, just opposite the Assistens Cemetery, is Jægersborggade. You may have cycled past it before, but next time, do make that turn! Tucked away in this relatively small street is such a lovely and diverse array of stores you’ll never be able to go past again without a quick visit to one of them. This is truly one of Nørrebro’s hidden gems.
Danish sweets are great, but if you’ve grown a bit weary of the happy world of Haribo and want something a bit more ‘grown up’, then you need to come to this place! Since 2008, Karamelleriet has been selling mouthwatering toffees, caramels and chocolates it makes on site. Fudge, cream caramels, peanut crunch and so much more, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to sugar heaven.

keramiker – inge vincents
The work of the ceramicist Inge Vincents may be, in her own words, “on the edge of the functional”, but it is definitely beautiful and unique. In her studio she makes coffee cups, flower vases, tea light holders and more. Most of the artwork is made from wafer-thin, white and cream-coloured ceramics that bring a touch of elegance to any home.

If you’ve been going around looking for that one thing that you feel your apartment is missing, or if you’re simply a fan of good art − even better if it’s reasonably priced − then look no further. This store is chock-full of beautiful and eye-catching artwork by many different artists. Both originals and prints are available, and you can get them framed for a small fee.
