Christianshavn is densely populated part of Copenhagen. A special atmosphere that makes me happy. There are ample of opportunities to see, eat, go short or long walks along the canal, in addition to Holmen. And a ten minute subway ride will bring you out to Amager beach. A walk in the harbor bath at Islands Brygge. It is possible to see Copenhagen from ports ago by renting a kayak or rowboat or an ordinary ride on the harbor bus. The large museum which Glyptotek, the National Museum, the State Museum of Art is definitely worth a visit. My husband Peter's ancestors came to Copenhagen from Italy and has laid the many mosaic floors in one of Copenhagen's City Hall and Glytoteket. My own grandfather was a painter and his paintings can be found at the National Gallery of Art.

Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the fifth floor and there is no lift . Which is characteristic of many buildings in Copenhagen . The property has been a classic working class housing right up to the eighties, when the small two bedroom apartments merged .. They worked typically on the big ship yard out on Refthaleøen , Burmeister & Wain . As my street incidentally that name. In very ancient times, Chritianshavn used as one of : nearby orphanages were a breeding home for orphans in Christianshavn Torv in Christianshavn , founded by Christian IV in 1605th In time, the home also used as a penal institution for adults, known as Woman Arrested in Christianshavn.
Homeless children were brought here and were trained in a specific craft . Half of all children in care died of disease , while 20 % of them fled . Very few left home for work in the rest of society . Institution produced fabrics for military uniforms, and it is debatable whether there really was no forced labor for the king .
A brand new monumental building in Baroque style plant was built 1739-41 by Philip de Lange. From 1742 Institution extended with a rasphus where some of the hardest male criminals from all over the country was put to hard labor . The prisoners buffed color of farvetræ for use in paints, unhealthy and dirty jobs.
The author and samfundsrevseren Niels Ditlev Riegels visited the place in 1787 and described the filthy conditions in his anonymously released magazine Monthly Review Kiøbenhavns Skilderie , he also put forward a plan to reform the economy of the place , but was not taken up by the administration.
In 1790 the institution changed its name to discipline , Rasp and Improvement The Al Franken and had more the character of a real prison. Guldhorn thief Niels Heidenreich was inserted here . In 1817 took a violent prisoner rebellion .
From 1870, the building of Christianshavn Penitentiary , better known as the women's prison in Christianshavn. A new prison building in the future Romanesque style, was built 1861-64 after drawings by NS Nebelong . One of the finest Danish poet Halfdan Rasmussen was born and raised here on Christianshavn.Så from being a true rhubarb district , it has become more and more fashionable and expensive to stay here . But quite nicely never will ..
Since the entire AIRBNB philosophy is based on trust, I feel therefore already that we as people well know what is right and wrong. And it is called well really just the unwritten rules. As I experience is about meeting each other in a proper, helpful and sympathetic way.
The apartment is located in an interesting town of Christiania. Not that far from the city centre considering there are a lot to see in this town also, and it's about 5-7 min walk to the metro. The metro leads all the way to the airport in a few stop so it is convenient as well!
The room is clean and big, and the apartment is fully equipped. Most importantly, the host was really nice!! Pia made sure I got the keys even though she can't be home to receive me, and she gave me very detailed directions to the apartment. The whole process was smooth-sailing!
Overall, it is a very cosy place to stay and I would definitely recommend travelers to stay with Pia :)
Pia was very welcoming and kind, and although we stayed with her only 2 out of 4 nights, she provided useful advice about getting around!
Pia was really cheerful and willing to give good tips, a real pleasure! The area is very well located, we could do almost everything by walk!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Greeted with a great smile and welcoming voice in excellent English! Helped me in with my luggage and immediately offered me cold water.
Once settled told me of nearby bakery, coffee shop and pizza place. Comfortable room, clean, large window for fresh Danish air and sunshine. Gave me keys to go and come at my leisure and good instruction on how to go places by foot, bus, and metro. By bedtime I felt like I was staying with an old friend.
Very nice apartment in great location and very helpful and friendly host.
We never got to stay with Pia in the end but she was lovely over the email and through our communication, I hope to come back one day and stay here.
