I think Christianshavn is the most interesting neighborhood in the Copenhagen. Sit in the Woodstock, chat with the strangers and learn their interesting life experiences...

There is so much to see and do in Copenhagen that you can feel a little rushed. Christianshavn is the perfect place to go and just waste a day. Chill out in the sun with a beer, great food and some very interesting locals.

Just had to go and see what all the fuss was about. here are decent places to eat and drink here despite rumours to the contrary. Yes it's full of tourists but I was a tourist. Enjoyed sitting in the summer sunshine having a beer even if it was a bit expensive . Still enjoyed it though !

Have been on several short holidays in en rental apartment in the old U-boat hangar. The area has it all. From Christania with pusherstreet and the old hippies,to Noma; the worlds best restaurant. between all that is the harbor environment with nice old buildings and ships. If you don not live here be sure to visit

The Christianshavn quarter is beautifully quaint with flower decorated houseboats and apartments overlooking the canal. During our canal ride there were sections in the area where no commentary was allowed because of complaints by the residents, but this did not impact our enjoyment of the trip at all. It was interesting to view the elaborate spire of the Church of... More

At any given moment, you can be see the youthful revolt of the university students or the traditional architecture of an older Denmark. Lovely and serene, Christianshavn is definitely becoming more popular.

This is certainly one of the historic sites you might want to visit in Copenhagen but if you are short of time it's one to miss. Likewise Christiana
