This is a continuation from our post What to do with Kids in Copenhagen: A Day Out in Nørrebro part 1.
Remember last time, when we guided you through a lovely and relaxed morning in Nørrebro? Well, here we go with our best tips for stretching that relaxing morning into a sweet afternoon.
After your trip to the Nørrebro Park playground, you might just be able to lure the kids away from their games with a little trip back up Stefansgade to Isværket .
This is a wonderful little ice cream shop, serving what I would name the best nougat ice cream in Copenhagen. You could also treat yourself to a sip of delicious Coffee Collective espresso, or explore the perfect hostess gift ideas among specialty teas and Summerbird chocolates.
Ice cream equipped kids and espresso in hand, you are ready for a stroll down through Jægersborggade.
Simply follow Stefansgade past the playground, and you will see the famed hipster street on your left, with all its little boutiques showcasing inspiring interior decoration, personal ceramics and hand-picked brands of women’s clothes at Damernes Magasin, and the blogger favorite, Ganni.
On Jægersborggade, you should take a peek into Café Retro, to keep in mind this non-profit café serving a heart warmingly hot ginger-elderflower-mint lemonade in the autumn. All bartenders are volunteers and café profits support orphan girls in India and education projects in Sierra Leone. The café is laid back and encourages lounging in the soft chairs with one of the board games at hand on the shelves.
Onwards down the street, go, because we are very close to Meyer’s Bakery and the out-of-this-world cinnamon swirls (kanelsnurrer in Danish), a slowly kneaded, soft cinnamon bun swirled into perfection. You might be lucky enough to arrive to get one freshly baked and still warm, as they bake them throughout the day. Have one cut in quarters and bring it for an afternoon picnic.
Because at the end of Jægersborggade, you will meet the green lusciousness of the Assistens Cemetery. Time to throw a blanket on the grass and enjoy the last rays of sunshine, while the kids explore the old, tangled trees and the graves of big danish personalities, such as Kierkegaard, Niels Bohr and Hans Christian Andersen.
Have a great day! Maybe we’ll bump into each other – we’ll be the ladies holding cinnamon swirls chasing laughing children.
