Hey Captain boat sailing in Christianshavn, Copenhagen

What do see and do in Christianshavn

The coloured houses and idyllic canals make Christianshavn unique and one of Copenhagen’s most picturesque districts.

Made up of a group of small islands, the neighbourhood is a real charmer, and ideal to explore by bike, on foot along the quays or even from the waterside. The group of small islands that make up this area, is perhaps mostly known for Freetown Christiania, but is worth visiting for many other reasons too.
