The Northwestern part of Copenhagen is a multicultural, yet rough and creative pearl of town. Here old and contemporary social housing and wellfare architecure blends with street art, cozy cafés and the iconic Grundtvigs Church.
On this guided off the beaten track tour we´ll tell you about the old working class area and the giant Bispebjerg Cemetery (well known for it´s cherry blossom in April) next to one of the most alluring masterpiece of Danish architecture, Grundtvigs Church.
Our route also includes a public school, where focus lies on outdoor activities and a modern library, which works as a social hub designed as a unifying space for the locals. On the same street an amazing outdoor art gallery consisiting of 16 colourful and distinct murals are displayed.
Yet to share with you on our walk, will be the curvy and captivating social housing facades designed by the world famous Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels (who by the way right now develops the first city on Mars…). In addition we will show you a handful of innovative initiatives taking place behind the walls of the district´s former industrial buildings. Depending on which day we visit, we will drop by some artists, ceramic designers or cool craft beer manufacturers, baristas or gallerists showing their place in the old factory unit. And we end the tour at one of our absolute favourite hangouts, where you can absorb all the impressions while becoming one of the locals for some time.
