Nørre Kvarter is a micro-neighbourhood within the confines of Copenhagen’s Latin Quarter and the Indre By district. In Danish, it’s colloquially known as Pisserenden, a name that bears homage to the tarnished reputation it had up until the 1970s. Despite its shady past, it’s a charming cluster of narrow streets lined with colourful houses, some of which are still original structures that survived the Copenhagen Fire of 1728. Home to just about 1000 people, Nørre Kvarter has a real neighbourhood feel with quirky shops, independent eateries and cosy cafées that are frequented by locals and tourists alike. Nørre Kvarter is within walking distance to most central tourist attractions like Rådhuspladsen, Tivoli, Strøget and Christiansborg. Even though the small neighbourhood is on the picturesque side, it’s definitely not peaceful, and the weekends are particularly noisy as it’s also the stomping ground for popular late-night bars and nightclubs.
