Christianshavn, Copenhagen

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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."

  • Apart from the canal and a visit to the freetown of Christiania this is just a place to wander and take in the old buildings, stop at a cafe or visit a church.  more »
  • Impact beautiful, the colors of the buildings enhance an urban environment unique in itself. We seem to have walked into a postcard. Visit highly recommended.

  • Having made the canal tour I walked to the Church of Our Saviour through quiet lanes next to the canals with the locals going about their business. Felt like a break from the tourist hot-spots.  more »
