Christianshavn

With its long canal, cobbled banks and fine restored 18C houses, Christianshavn exudes the peaceful charm of a small Danish coastal port. It is, nonetheless, just a short way from Copenhagen's historical centre, and you just have to cross Knippelsbro (Knippel Bridge) to reach this valued neighbourhood. The Nordic Baroque-style Vor Frelsers Kirke (Church of Our Saviour), completed in 1752, has a breath-taking view over the city and sea from the top of its steeple, which is surrounded by a spiral staircase.
