Cultural Christianshavn Private Walking Tour

Book this tour now

COPENHAGEN. 1.5hrs. Narrow waterways, bridges, rippling water against houseboats. Are we in Amsterdam or Copenhagen? On our Cultural Christianshavn Private Walking Tour discover the vibrantly cultural, maritime area of Christianshavn.

Gaze down the canal of Nyhavn, out into the bustling waters of Copenhagen’s harbour. Appearing to rise out of the water in the distance, you spot a newly developed residential complex. Poking up behind it are crooked houses full of character. We hop across the harbour over the “Kissing Bridge” to have a closer look (mind the bikes zooming by, this is Copenhagen!). We’ve now arrived in a new inner-city district, Christianshavn. So let our exploration of Cultural Christianshavn begin!

Christianshavn is a place of fascinating history, visual arts, alternative lifestyle (can you guess in which area?) and harbourside hangouts. Have we hooked you yet? How about an old prison, world-famous restaurants (Noma anyone?), and maritime history? This district is a mix of historical and modern, creative and revolutionary, together making for a vibrantly cultural area of Copenhagen.

We turn the corner and... Wait, have we popped over to Amsterdam?! No, we're still in Copenhagen, walking along the lovely canals of Christianshavn. Hear the water rippling against the houseboats that line the narrow waterways. Walking down quiet streets and over bridges, don't forget to look up and appreciate the beautiful architecture around you. Soon enough you'll be looking up at the Church of Our Saviour, with its famous spiral tower, and be met with a display of colour at the gates to the Freetown of Christiania. We’ll end our Cultural Christianshavn Private Walking Tour, at the gates, with the story of Christiania. After being enlightened by the story of Christiania, you're free to go inside to explore on your own. Cultural, creative and crafty, this is Christianshavn!

Please note: This tour ends outside the entrance to Christiania - it does not go inside (only Christiania’s own guides are allowed to guide inside). Guests are welcome to continue into Christiania after the tour on their own (it is approx. a 15 min walk back to Nyhavn).
