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."

  • We were staying very close to Nyhavn so went for a wander over the bridge to see what else there was to look at. Very pretty place with some nice restaurants near by. 
  • We did tour and it was very much worth it. First the most representative buildings of this area you are viewing and this introduces you in the history of the same, to the curious enclave of Christiania.

  • We stopped here on our way to Christiania. Our bus stopped outside a bakery that was jam-packed to the door. It had, my sister said, the best pastries in the world!
