Problems in Copenhagen’s Norrebro District

Norrebro is a neighborhood of Copenhagen, Denmark that has been likened by some to Greenwich Village in New York City.  We do not include Norrebro as one of Copenhagen’s Best Places to Visit in our ThereArePlaces Guide to Denmark, as we regard it as a little too edgy for most visitors.  We read earlier today that The British Foreign & Commonwealth Office has advised travellers to be cautious when visiting Norrebo, as it has become the scene of significant gang violence.  Read this article from the Copenhagen Post Online for more information.

Last week we read another article on Norrebro indicating that a volunteer group providing a neighborhood watch function in this section of Copenhagen had thrown in the towel and given up “policing” the area because of the dangers involved.  We recommend that you avoid Norrebro, at least for the time being.
