Christianshavn, Copenhagen

(4.3/5 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."

  • Neighborhood to visit again! Pretty facades along the canal and boats, many small restaurants/cafes that offer drinking and dining to enjoy the surroundings.

  • People sell drugs on the roads inside this self-governing area but there are some great food places inside too that are worth going to visit.  more »
  • Christianshavn is very beautiful and many fun experiences. NOMA, Circle the bridge and Christiania is any of the points you can visit.
