And the coolest neighborhood in the world is…

“Delicious, fun and vibrant.”

These are the adjectives chosen by the Copenhagen tourism board to describe the Nørrebro district. At a time when travelers are fine-tuning their search for an autumn weekend getaway destination or for the perfect spot for spending the year-end holidays away from home, this corner of the Danish capital, characterized by its large student population, has just been crowned “the coolest neighborhood in the world” by Time Out magazine.

This referential guide for the best spots for going out compiled the list by getting the expert point of view of its 27,000 editors and contributors, who are already surveyed for the publication’s annual index, on the neighborhoods where it’s good to be, hang out, grab a drink and do things in a “community spirit.”

For this special edition, not only the atmosphere, but also the culinary, nightlife, artistic and cultural scenes have been evaluated and tested to compose this year’s list. In Nørrebro, for example, Time Out invites travelers to discover new bakeries and wine bars specializing in natural wines.

The top three in this ranking are all neighborhoods that are close to the LGBTQ+ community.

Meanwhile, the district of Poblacion in Makati City made it to the 46th spot out of the 49 listed neighborhoods.

“Once best known for its red-light district, the area today brims with old apartments-turned-businesses and hostels that draw an eclectic mix of locals and visitors from the 15 other districts that make up Manila,” wrote Shirin Bhandari for the publication.

Here are the top 10 coolest neighborhoods in the world according to Time Out:

1. Nørrebro, Copenhagen

2. Andersonville, Chicago

3. Jongno 3-ga, Seoul

4. Leith, Edinburgh

5. Station District, Vilnius

6. Chelsea, New York

7. XI District, Budapest

8. Ngor, Dakar

9. Sai Kung, Hong Kong

10. Richmond, Melbourne
