"The canal plays a huge role in the life on Christianshavn. It’s a great place to meet up with friends or family and have a picnic or just hang out with a cup of coffee while reading a book. If you follow the canal all the way around it makes for a great stroll where you get to see the different architecture, houseboats and residential homes. I think the canal adds a lot of "hygge" to Christianshavn and makes it the coziest neighbourhood in Copenhagen."
Bådudlejningen on #Christianshavn
"Christianshavn's Boat Rentals and Café (Bådudlejningen) has existed on Christianshavn for more than 100 years. When the Boat Rental opens, you know spring has arrived and people start to flock outside. The little green house was built in 1905 and is the hallmark of Christianshavn's canal. The café is a very popular destination for locals and visitors should definitely swing by too. The Boat Rental is located right by Christianshavn’s main street “Torvegade” so you have easy access to it. If you prefer to embark on a harbor tour with a guide you can do it from several places. I highly recommend taking a look a Copenhagen from the water, because it shows you the city from a whole other perspective."
More than #Noma
"There is an interesting food scene on Christianshavn and in every price range. Christianshavn is home to Noma, but let's face it– it's not a place you just pop in for a quick meal. I love meeting up with friends at Café Wilder, which is a little French bistro. When I’m on my own I often go to Luna’s Diner or Sweet Treat - their coffee is really good. I love the ambiance at Copenhagen Street Food located on Paper Island (Papirøen) and I am also really excited about a new French restaurant called LaLaLa. Parterre is my favorite spot for Sunday morning coffee. It's a little café on my street and it's located conveniently by the charming canal."
"The biking conditions in Denmark and Copenhagen are extremely unique. There are no hills, plenty of small narrow streets, excellent bike paths and particular the center of Copenhagen is almost free of cars which makes it perfect to ride your bike. You can almost say that biking is in our blood. It’s a convenient, cheap and healthy way to get around and at the same time you see so much of the city. Since there is so much water in Copenhagen, and especially on Christianshavn, we have a number of bike bridges around Copenhagen that connects the city – like this beautiful Circle Bridge by renowned Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson."
