Christianshavn, Copenhagen

This post is going to be even more image-heavy than usual…consider yourself warned!

Christianshavn is a part of the city centre (Indre By) in Copenhagen, but on its own island the other side of the canals. It’s got a more bohemian vibe compared to the rest of town, though plenty of colourful houses as is characteristic of Copenhagen ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s definitely a picturesque and walkable neighbourhood, and a perfect place to stop by for a drink by the water or cruise through the canal. It’s also very close to the notorious Christiania, the self-governing commune within the city which has become a tourist attraction in its own right.

The impressive church you see in the photos below with the helix tower is the Church of Our Saviour. I’d love to climb the spires but the place was closed due to the coronavirus. There are so many places I can’t wait to visit here over the next couple of years!

  4. Beautiful pictures! I love Christianshavn ๐Ÿ™‚ The first time I came to Denmark in 2006, I climbed the tower of the Our Saviour’s Church, mainly because I read the book by Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the world where he described the tower and how the main character had to climb it to get used to the height. That was my only time climbing it tho ๐Ÿ™‚
