Gammel Strand, Copenhagen
(2.9/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Experience Copenhagen's lively side at Gammel Strand, one of the city's oldest and most picturesque streets. A natural beach once occupied this site, around which formed the small fishing village that was to become Copenhagen. Today, the street is most recognizable for its canal lined with colorful 18th- and 19th-century houses. But it also houses some of the city's most popular bars and cafes, a must-see for those looking to explore the city's nightlife. You can also head here to catch a boat tour of the canals. Make Gammel Strand a centerpiece of your Copenhagen vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Copenhagen itinerary builder.

  • Pleasant road ahead is connected to the rest of the shopping streets of the capital. There are many shops and pubs and restaurants. it's nice to turn around especially when it's not cold and the weather permits

  • Across the Canal, North of Christian boy Castle Street. Christian boy Castle seen from the street, to take pictures and to celebrate. Street think worth lining along the stately buildings of brick or stone, so should go.

  • Like many places in the city, is in works, that take away the charm. I suppose it's more cute finished
