Christianshavn is a vibrant and very popular place in copenhagen where you can discover the old copenhagen with our traditional houses but also see the more modern living style (for example the many different houseboats)
Here is a little list of the main attractions on Christianshavn:
1. The Freetown Christiania (Fristaden Christiania). Freetown Christiania is a world famous ‘Free Town’ right in the heart of Copenhagen. Originally there were military barracks on the site of the town, but the barracks were left empty in 1971. The barracks were soon occupied by swarms of young people who wanted autonomy from the Danish Government. The Danish Government made the decision to allow these young people to continue living there and they legalized the Free Town. Christiania is the second most visited attraction in Copenhagen behind Tivoli Gardens, and visitors to Copenhagen should find time to see this very unique social experiment in action. Christiania contains houses, workshops, good restaurants, pubs and several concert venues. There are only approximately one thousand people who actually live in Christiania. Every weekend there are guided tours. The tours start by the Gallopperiet by the main entrance on the street ‘Prinsessegade’.
2. Wilders Square (Wilders Plads). Wilders Square was originally a busy town square where plenty of trade would take place. The square has a pleasant atmosphere, and it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the ample people traffic. In Wilders Square there is a beautiful two story timber framed house. The house was built in 1736, and it was originally a sail maker’s workshop.
3. Vor Frelsers Church (Vor Frelsers Kirke). Vor Frelsers Church was built in the year 1682. The Church was built in the Dutch baroque style and it was designed by the Dutch architect Lambert Van Haven. In 1752 the very unique spire you see today was added to the structure. The spire was designed by the architect Laurids de Thurah. The spire is 86.6 meters tall, and it is one of the highest in Copenhagen. There is free entrance into the church, but there is a small cost to go up the tower. The tower is has a great view of the Copenhagen skyline.
4. Knippel Bridge (Knippelsbro). Knippel Bridge is an impressive bascule bridge with tall copper coated bridge towers. There have been many bridges on the site. The present bridge was built in 1937 and it was named ‘Knippelsbro’ after one of the original operators of the first bridge. The first bridge was built by King Christian IV in 1618 and the name of one of the first bridge keepers was Hans Knip, so the town’s people called the bridge ‘Knippelbro’ (Knippel’s Bridge).
5. Christians Church (Christians Kirken) The Christians Church is an attractive rococo styled building which was built in 1759. The Church was designed by the famous Danish architect Nicolai Eigtved. The church was originally built for the many Germans who were living in the area at the time. The church was used exclusively by the German community until 1886. Today the church continues to conduct normal church services, as well as for many concerts and lectures.

Other Things to Note
We have a little dog.
No parties, no noise after 11 p.m. No smooking in the apartment, but outside is okay (the apartment is on the ground floor) :)
The host was very welcoming. The location was convenient and pleassnt by the canal. The facilities were very good.
Nelly's directions to her lovely apartment were spot on, and it is in quite a good location within 15 minutes walk of all of the sites in central Copenhagen. She was waiting for us when we arrived and was more than happy to answer any questions we had. The room itself is well appointed with a small fridge and lots of storage space, and most important the beds are quite comfy! Although we didn't use it, the kitchen is available to use as well. Also, the shower is a nice big size, which in Europe is not always the case.
We enjoyed very much our stay at your place. It was exactly what we were hoping it would be. You are such a nice and interesting lady. We are glad we met you and have chosen your place. I hope we will have an opportunity to meet you again ... maybe in Montreal ! Thanks for everything !
Nelly nous a réservé un belle accueil, toujours disponible et serviable. La chambre mis à notre disposition était très agréable. Son logement est idéalement situé à 2 pas de presque tout surtout à partir de cet été ou un nouveau pont va ouvrir et relier plus directement le centre ville. Si on me demande si je conseille le logement je dis un grand OUI, et y retournerai peut être un jour.
Nelly and her son made us feel at home immediately. They helped us find parking for our car and were excellent hosts.
Beds were very comfortable and the room was very spacious. The apartment couldn't really be much better located. We were able to see most of central Copenhagen within a 15 minute walk. It is fun to walk around the cobblestone streets in the immediate neighborhood. There are plenty of cafes/restaurants near by to relax in the evenings.
When we visit Copenhagen again, I hope we can stay there again and wouldn't hesitate recommending others to stay here as well.
