Nørrebro, ranked 28th overall, was commended for its great culinary, music and bar options.

A diverse, multiethnic community just north of the Copenhagen’s famous Lakes, Nørrebro has a never-sleeps sort of atmosphere, where treks through weekend flea markets seep into meals at thriving Middle Eastern and African restaurants, then rounds at a pared-down dive bar,” wrote Time Out.
