    The 49 coolest neighbourhoods in the world
    We polled 27,000 city-dwellers and asked local experts to rank the greatest places for food, fun, culture and community

    So, what’s that, exactly? To find out, you’ve got to look at what’s going on around you, out on the street, down the park, in your backyard. Throughout 2020 and 2021, our cities have thrived. Against impossible odds, communities banded together, hung out, made stuff. They displayed all the same energy and resilience and grassroots ingenuity that allowed them to spring up in the first place. They survived.

    And now we come to our annual ranking of the world’s coolest neighbourhoods. This year, we couldn’t help but switch up our priorities. Food, drink, nightlife, culture – important. Community spirit, resilience, sustainability – just as important, especially if we are to come out of this pandemic with things we can be proud of and tell the rest of the world about.

    Just like we’ve done for the past three years, we took the results of our annual Time Out Index survey (which this year polled 27,000 city-dwellers) to our local editors and contributors. They then vetted the public vote against those all-important criteria – cool stuff, but also kind stuff, forward-looking stuff – and made their final picks. Our panel of experts then ranked the lot.

    The result is a love letter to the city at its most joyful and surprising. Read on to see whether your neighbourhood made the cut.

    1. Nørrebro, Copenhagen

    However you define ‘cool’, Nørrebro has it. This diverse district, on the northern side of Copenhagen’s lakes, is a dazzling blend of historic landmarks, ultramodern architecture and food and drink joints to make this famously gourmet city proud. Even during this harshest of years, new bakeries, restaurants and natural wine bars have proliferated – and it almost goes without saying that they all put a focus on local, seasonal produce (quite a lot of it foraged, probably). This year has also seen community initiatives flourish: Car-Free Sunday made its comeback, swapping traffic on Nørrebrogade for live music and flea markets, while Usynlige Stier (‘Invisible Paths’) is a new, interactive art exhibition that brings fun and a splash of colour to the neighbourhood’s most vulnerable areas.

    The perfect day: Grab a coffee (and the city’s best croissant) from Rondo, then enjoy it al-fresco in magical Assistens Kirkegård, the final resting place of Hans Christian Andersen. After that, head to Jægersborggade, where you can browse sustainable homewares, second-hand fashion, Nordic skincare products and artisan produce of basically any description. Finish with dinner at Silberbauers Bistro and a nightcap at The Barking Dog.

    The 49 coolest neighbourhoods in the world

    That is exactly where I live, 1 minute from both Assistens Kirkegården and Jægersborgsgade. That is not to bad to be able to say, that you live in the coolest neighbourhood in the whole damn world is it? :D

    Sorry mate, they've got Dalston, London, in at number 13.

    Dalston is a gentrified hell-hole, an object lesson in everything that is lost when working class districts get colonised by bourgeois bohemians.
