Christianshavn is a man-made island neighborhood in Copenhagen. It was established in the early 17th century by King Christian IV as a military fortification and center for commerce. Divided by a network of canals, it is often compared to Amsterdam in style.
Christianshavn used to be a working-class neighborhood in the 20th century, but it has since evolved and now is considered to be quite a lively, diverse, and trendy neighborhood. Its streets branch out from the main canal and the houses are colorful and quaint. It is a great area for a stroll or to grab a meal.
Christianshavn is easily accessible by walking over Knippelsbro. For public transportation, take the 2A, 19, 48, or 350S bus or the metro and get off at the Christianshavn stop.
