This little stretch has a stunning view, feel and atmosphere with variety of bars, restaurants and shops on one side and lovely sailing boats across the other side. Beautifully crafted very colourful buildings across the canal are also adding to this very peaceful and inspiring view. I was there back in January so the weather wasn't great to see lots... More

Was walking around here after seeing the Church of our Saviour. Got a bit lost in the area. I was walking around in circles as the map on my phone was telling me to cross the canal on bridges that did not exist.

a must walk area of Copenhagen! So much to see and do, eat and drink and get a real feeling of the city and the people.

This little gem of a 'village' is tucked away amongst dense greenery. Self-sustaining with its own culture and vibe, Chrisitanshavn definitely embraces its status as a 'free city'. It's refreshing to see people enjoy life (with or without drugs), and it's clear the population here are happy and content in their confinements. This is a no-go for anti-drug, pro-law individuals...

Beautiful area to walk around and stop at the cafes on the canal. Colorful buildings, boats, and lots of people passing by to watch at. Many places to just sit down and enjoy people and scenery. Nice boutiques as well. A bit pricey though.

Stroll around the area and enjoy the nice view. Restaurants there are quite pricy though depending on your budget.

This area is a throw back to hippy times. People were arriving in droves. There were a lot of really stoned people along the way. It feels like you are on a commune.

Easy to visit walking from central Copenhagen or via the metro. Several attractions close by and within walking distance once you are there. Try Lagkagehuset for Danish and coffee. Visit Christianstad for a step back to the 60's and 70s counterculture days. Climb the spire for an awesome view in at Church of Our Saviour (aka Vor Frelsers Kirke). Book... More
