Christianshavn

Christianshavn was built by Christian IV in the early sixteenth century and is nicknamed “Little Amsterdam” thanks to its small canals, cute bridges and Dutch-style houses. Reaching skywards on the far side of Torvegade is one of the city’s most recognizable features, the copper and golden spire of Vor Frelsers Kirke. Also worth a look is the canalside Dansk Arkitektur Center, with regular exhibitions on design and architecture plus an excellent café and bookshop.
