It’s hard to think of a more charming way to cruise around and see Copenhagen than by boat from the lovely canals of Christianshavn.

FriendShips offer comfortable electrical boats from their location by the canal between Christianshavn and Paper Island.

The nice, white fiberglass boats hold up to 8 persons, are easy to sail and require no previous sailing experience. Sailing at a maximum of 4 knots for safety measures, it’s a tranquil experience to sail around the canals and harbour of Copenhagen.

Perfect location for sightseeing

From the rental spot you have Freetown Christiania, the Opera, Christianshavns Canal and a view to Our Savior’s Church around the corner as some of the main attractions.

The roomy boats are powered by a small, silent and pollution-free electrical engine, and there is a small table in case you wish to bring something to eat and drink onboard.
