Christianshavn, Copenhagen
(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
A former working-class neighborhood, Christianshavn earned a bohemian reputation in the 1970s as a fashionable, diverse, and lively part of the city. King Christian IV founded the neighborhood in the early 17th century as an extension of the city's fortifications. Walk along the canal, which separates the city side and the rampart side of the neighborhood. Stop at the Blue Corner, one of the few modern buildings in the lower rampart side. The neighborhood also features a 17th century Baroque and an 18th century rococo church, the Copenhagen Opera House, a historic house museum, and the Arsenal Island. Climb the winding spire of the Church of Our Savior, mentioned in a chapter of Jules Verne's "A Journey to the Center of the Earth."

  • Christianshavn is developed from working district to attractive residential neighborhood. Fortunately, there is preserved a part traditional taverns, and there are many old buildings from the 17th-18th century. We lived right out of the old see also from 1755. It's exciting just to walk around by canals and stare at boats, hiking across the channel, take on Papirøen and eat on the Street Food and look over to the Opera etc We also strolled a little outside of the area where the House on Christianshavn was recorded.

  • Honestly no I caught my attention. A little weird people who want to be out of the system, but only sometimes. It is not necessary

  • While the Center very similar to other metropolitan cities such as New York, with boulevards lined with shops international, this district is much more characteristic. Crossed by a lot of channels, where you will also find vessels used as houses, and with very colorful and typical houses. In this neighborhood is a little particular people but is not to be scared. Recommend a ride
