Try something different: a charming houseboat in Copenhagen (Holmen/Christainshavn)
Copenhagen's best located houseboat area right next to Holmen preserved ramparts and yet only 15 minutes from downtown. The location is perfect for exploring Copenhagen and the nearby area. Very close to smaller nice beaches and just 15 min. from the big beach at Amager strandpark. Very family-friendly area. 5 min from the boat there is Christiania, and the cosy area of Christianshavn with metro.
The houseboat consists of a big and bright kitchen / dining / living room, a bathroom, a large bedroom, hall, and 3 smaller rooms. The kitchen has all modern facilities such as gas stove, dishwasher and everythink you need for cooking
There are 80 m2 terrace on the roof with a fantastic view. The houseboat offers all modern amenities, dishwasher, computer, internet ect. The houseboat is equip child-friendly with highchair and toys. The boat accommodates 8 people, but 2 more persons can sleep on mattresses in the living room.
Holmen is a very special part of Copenhagen and has until 1993 belonged to the Danish fleet. But Holmen quickly transformed into a plush residential area with many modern and luxurious apartments. At Holmen and Christainshavn you will also find many good restaurants and cafes. If you want to go downtown you just take the Water Bus from the Opera House, located about 300 meters away, and you're in Nyhavn in no time. The water Bus is an experience in itself and costs the same as going by bus, train or the metro.
Feel free to ask any question, and we will do our best to answer them.
Our family of six had a great time on the houseboat. There was plenty of room for everyone, and the boat was warm, comfortable and cosy. The location was very peaceful and quiet, but still within reach of the centre of Copenhagen by taxi or water bus. If arriving by car we would recommend speaking to the owners to make sure that you understand exactly where it is safe to park, as we got a parking ticket within an hour of arriving while parked next to the houseboat, before we had managed to find the recommended parking location. When we spoke to Sara and Christian about it on the phone they were very helpful, and Christian came around to guide us to the location himself.
We really enjoyed staying on the houseboat. It is brilliantly situated in Holmen a short ferry ride from the buzz of Copenhagen but also only a stone's throw away from the fantastic Opera House .
The boat is surprisingly long and wide and was great for a family of five adults. It felt like a privilege to stay in what is clearly a well loved family home.
Holmen feels a very safe and quiet area to be but it is also a hive of activity with students cycling to and fro and the navy band practising on the opposite bank in the morning ( not too early and very tuneful!).
The restaurant opposite, 56, is also very good - we did hesitate at the cost as it is not cheap but was well worth it as a treat. There is a Netto supermarket within walking distance which we found convenient and good value .
Sara und Christian waren sehr zuverlässig, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Wir durften uns wie bei Freunden fühlen, alles war für uns zum Gebrauch zugänglich. Das Hausboot ist wunderbar gelegen, für uns zumindest ideal.
Gegenüber ist eine Wiese vorhanden, die zum spielen und verweilen einladen würde. Obwohl es sich um ein sehr grosses Gelände handelt, wurden wir von der Besitzerschaft darauf hingewiesen, dass es sich um ein privates Grundstück handelt, welches nicht benutzt werden darf. Schade!
Good living accomodation, bad parking -we both got parking tickets. There was no way to understand how the parking works.
Inside the boat, it was very spacious and nice! Outside it was a little much spiderwebs and rust...
Love the boat, the surroundings and the restaurant right next door. We will be back! The hostess was super too.
