Christianshavn is a part of Copenhagen which for some reason I don't always visit when I'm home. Don't ask me why. It's located just a 10-15 minutes walk from the main street Strøget and it's a really cosy (and I might add photogenic) area. For tourists it is probably most famous for being the area where Christiania (The free town) is located.
Last time in Copenhagen - after visiting The Paper Island - I got a chance to take a little walk through Christianshavn and even take a few photos for the blog.
The area is full of great cafes and eateries (Try Luna's Diner which is such a great cafe for lunch or dinner).
There are lots of green areas and as already mentioned this is also where you find Christiania if you are looking for something a bit more alternative.
Walk around the little streets and look at the old colorful houses or take a stroll along the canal. This is an area of Copenhagen which is absolutely perfect for outdoor living on a warm summer day.
