Explore picturesque Christianshavn
Christianshavn is one of the most fashionable districts in Copenhagen. Situated on an artificial island, it offers beautiful canal views. It has unique architecture, stylish restaurants and cultural attractions all of which are popular with visitors and residents alike. Check out the famous landmarks and walk by the canal while snapping some pictures of this beautiful part of town.
Things to do on this island
You will find it all in Christianshavn including fine food, culture and historic buildings. Landmarks and attractions in this beautiful district of Copenhagen include the Opera House, the 18th-century Christian's Church and the Danish Center of Architecture. You can also climb to the top of the Church of Our Savior's corkscrew spire for stunning views of the city. This Baroque treasure was built in the 1600’s and has a magnificent three story organ, which is one of the most photographed instruments in the world due to its immense beauty.
One of the most picturesque parts of Christianshavn is the canal. Dainty cobbled stone streets run along the water and fancy restaurants bring life to the area. Enjoy a sumptuous meal in one of the district's gourmet and Michelin restaurants, rent a boat and relax floating down the water, or stroll along the streets to see the distinctively designed buildings.
A trip to Freetown Christiania
Another great attraction on the island is the controversial Freetown of Christiana. This completely car free, hippie zone has its own set of laws, autonomous from Danish Law. Before heading in make sure you read the sign indicating ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ and avoid taking photos or filming.
