From being a street mostly famous for its large number of Antique shops, which in the summer months expand their stores out on the sidewalk, Ravnsborggade has become today a wonderful blend of all kinds of shops and one of the best shopping streets in Copenhagen.
In fact, one of the highlight of Ravnsborggade, is maybe its proximity to Nørrebrogade, which provides once a week from April 4th to October 31st, a setting to one of Copenhagen’s loveliest flea markets: the Nørrebro Loppemarked.
Dubbed Denmark’s narrowest flea market, the Nørrebro Loppemarked is also the longest. Established back in 1986 by a group of traders in Nørrebrogade, the Nørrebro flea market stretches for 333 metres on one half of the sidewalk, along the yellow wall of the Assistens Kierkegaard Cemetry on Nørrebrogade. In fact, the backdrop of the yellow cemetery walls gives the Nørrebro flea market quite a unique feel unrivaled in the region.
Although narrow, the Nørrebro flea market offers nonetheless exceptional finds for those willing to put effort into rummaging and searching for that perfect deal. From vintage furniture and antiques to art, jewelry, old watches, vintage pictures, and much more, Nørrebro flea market has pretty much anything for everyone.
Antiquing Tip Of The Day
If you’re buying 19th-century furniture, you’re probably looking for pieces that have primary or secondary paint. With newly painted pieces that are trying to look older, there’s usually a repetition in the paint that seems too regular. On a piece that has been banged around for the last 200 years, the paint’s not going to be regular; it’s going to be chipped off in places.
