Worth a wander over to see

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 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!

We wen here in February and I found it OK but I could imagine that in summer it would be really crowded. There are lads of bars an shops, Just thought it was quite spoiled.

I came to see this place several times in my 4 days holidays during the daylight and night too. It was romantic and magical walking down with my gentleman.

Lovely view with the coloured building and the boats by the river. Cold during winter but still nice to walk around during day time. Very lively with loads of cafes and pubs around.

. . beyond the rest of the city. It is slightly different in that there's no major shops, lots more boats and residential. You'll need to at least step into this area to get to Paper Island - so spend a little time and walk around instead of regretting that you didn't.

This place is well known for everyone in Denmark & so should you. It's always worth a visit, atmosphere, restaurants, bars & of course the price of spending a few hours in this street. It doesn't come cheap, but as a tourist it for sure is worth including in your trip to Denmark

Read all about the history and the background of the place. Wanted to look around and take lots of pictures, but was warned against it by my friend from Copenhagen saying lots of drug dealers roam around the place and they can assume you to be a police informer or just plain rob you off ur valuables! Couldnt verify it,... More

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighbourhood Profile
Christianshavn
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By, you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century, and canals which are home to many boats and ships, some of which has been turned into restaurants or even serve as fully furnished homes. The best known attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
