Nørrebro has had various railway stations at different locations. The present Nørrebro Station was built where it now stands in 1930 because the line between Copenhagen and Slangerup – now the Farum Line – terminated right on the other side of Nørrebrogade.

It was called Lygten Station or Copenhagen L. However, Lygten Station, a miniature version of the Copenhagen Central Station, was closed down in 1976 when the Farum Line was diverted through Ryvang and Svanemøllen stations to the Copenhagen Central Station. Nørrebro Station will once again become an important station for changing lines when the Metro City Circle station opens almost directly under the present station.
