      Kunsthal Charlottenborg

      0.31 km

      Here, in the historical extension to the 17th century Charlottenborg Palace, you’ll find one of the city’s most captivating exhibition spaces - and one of the largest for contemporary art in Europe. 

      With its central location in Nyhavn, the exhibition space has been presenting art focused on established stars as well as new talent from both home and abroad since 1883. Exhibitions have a strong international focus and are supplemented by activities like artist talks, performances, concerts and video screenings. With its focus on a broad audience, it’s seen as a central rallying point for contemporary art in Copenhagen.

      Previous exhibitions have included a five-meter-tall golden egg with a sauna inside it from Bigert & Bergström, and an exhibition on large-scale contemporary art in architecture by Bjarke Ingels Group.  

      Motto Bookstore

      Along with art, Kunsthal Charlottenborg also includes the respected Motto Bookstore, where you can find a special selection of art books and magazines, books on design, typography, literature and theory.

      The courtyard of Kunsthal Charlottenborg is open to the public and, with its calm environment, can be used as a much-needed breathing space where you can relax on its benches, and children can play.

      Apollo Bar & Kantine

      The gallery also has a cafe-restaurant, Apollo Bar & Kantine, in the courtyard. During the week it serves vegetarian lunches, while on a Friday night you can expect a party atmosphere with DJs.

      The Church of Holmen

      0.35 km

      Survived the blaze Miraculously, The Church of Holmen survived the fires that devastated much of the city in earlier centuries.

      Not only is The Church of Holmen the oldest piece of Renaissance architecture in Copenhagen, but also the only church with a fully intact 350-year-old Renaissance interior.

      Sarcophagi of seafaring heroes

      Originally, the building served as an anchor smithy, but it was transformed into a church for sailors by King Christian IV. So, it is no mere coincidence that Tordenskjold and Niels Juel, two of Denmark's greatest seafarers, still rest in their sarcophagi in this church.

      The votive ship hanging from the ceiling is a model of the Christianus Quintus, Niels Juel's flagship building at the naval dockyard in 1904. The history of the church also reveals the less flattering fact that Tordenskjold's coffin was originally tucked away by the authorities who were in the precarious situation of owing Tordenskjold a large sum of money. Not until 1819, one hundred years after his death, did he get his marble sarcophagus. In 1995, an official funeral ceremony was finally held in the church, some 275 years after he had passed away.

      The Inner Harbour Bridge

      0.36 km

      Also called The Kissing Bridge, the Inner Harbour Bridge makes it easy to get from Nyhavn to Nordatlantens Brygge by bike or foot. Built in 2016, it’s at the heart of the city, with fab harbour views.

      Stand on the bridge and watch the yellow harbour bus pass by, along with kayakers, sailing boats and GoBoats, or take a canal tour and slip underneath it as you explore the harbour. The 180-m long bridge was a godsend when it was created to connect these two busy city neighbourhoods, Nyhavn and Christianshavn/Holmen.

      No matter which side you come from, make sure to stop at the designated platforms on the bridge to take in the views of the harbour area and down Nyhavn canal.

      Fancy a kiss?

      The Inner Harbour Bridge is also called “The Kissing Bridge” because when it retracts to let ships pass, and then connects again in a calm, horizontal, sliding move, it's a little like a kiss. It's a rather special design for a harbour bridge unlike the more common vertical lift bridge design on Knippelsbro further down the harbour canal.

      The Inner City Bridge is also the final step of the Harbour Circle, a circular route for cyclists and pedestrians to explore and enjoy along Copenhagen's harbour front.

      The Old Stock Exchange (Børsen)

      0.37 km

      Update 16th of April, 2024: This page will not be updated with news in regard to the devastating fire. The page will be changed when the full extent of the fire is known.


      Topped with four entwined dragon tails, The Old Stock Exchange dates back to 1625 and is one of the oldest buildings in Copenhagen. A key sight on the city’s skyline, it also has a mysterious legend. 

      King Christian IV had realized the importance of increased trade and commerce, and so he had this grand building erected. At that time, the building had room for at least 40 market stalls. The Old Stock Exchange was then surrounded by water from three sides, so ships could unload their cargo directly at the wharf in front.

      Making cannon balls from the roof

      The Old Stock Exchange was built in Dutch Renaissance style. King Christian IV had originally covered the roof with lead, but during the Swedish occupation of Copenhagen 1658-59, much of this lead was removed to produce cannon balls, and the holes in the roof were only partly covered with tin and tile.

      At the end of the 19th century was the building roofed with copper, as you see it today.

      The four intertwined dragon tails of the dragon spire are topped by three crowns, symbolizing the Scandinavian empire – Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

      The legend of the spire

      According to legend, the dragon-tailed spire guards the building against enemy attacks and fires. Is it true? Well, surprisingly, the Old Stock Exchange has many times been mysteriously spared from damage when fires have broken out in neighbouring buildings.

      Christiansborg Palace (the present day Danish Parliament) has burnt down on several occasions, and even recently in 1990, a fire broke out in the Proviantgaarden in Slotsholmsgade (Slotholm Street). On this occasion, as before, the Old Stock Exchange survived unscathed.

      Today the Old Stock Exchange are used for gala dinners, conferences, parties and other events and is not open to the public.

      Krøyers Plads

      0.39 km

      Krøyers Plads is a new square located at a great location in the Copenhagen neighbourhood Christianshavn.

      The square was designed together with the surrounding buildings, which continue the historic warehouse structure along the harbor and reinvent the industrial warehouse tradition of the area.

      The square is a great place to enjoy beautiful views over Copenhagen or have a picnic, and then it is even close to the wine bar Restaurant Nærvær.

      Kongens Nytorv

      0.41 km

      Kongens Nytorv - or 'The King's New Square' is a square in the heart of Copenhagen's old town, home to prominent institutions such as the Royal Theatre, Hotel D'Angleterre and Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

      It's also steps from Nyhavn and from Strøget, the city's main shopping area, and has a metro station. It's a great place to start a walking tour of the city, and a good location if you like architecture and statues. 

      The square dates back to the 17th century, when it was surrounded by elegant buildings and played host to the city's finest inhabitants who visited the theater, hotel and Charlottenborg Palace (now the art gallery Kunsthal Charlottenborg). The equestrian statue of Christian V on horseback was raised in 1688 to celebrate the king who laid out the area. It is the oldest equestrian statue and royal sculpture in Copenhagen.

      Nordatlantens Brygge

      0.42 km

      The opening of North Atlantic House marks the first in a line of events guaranteed to expand your horizon and stir your senses. You will find four exhibition rooms in which you can get a taste of North Atlantic culture.

      Experience everything from performances, dance, music, films and lectures to a mixture of exhibitions, events and debating evenings. And much more.

      Explore North Atlantic art and culture in the setting of an old protected 16-century warehouse. For more than 200 years, Nordatlantens Brygge was the centre of shipping traffic between Denmark and the North Atlantic.

      Authentic surroundings

      These days, other ports serve the North Atlantic market, and the historic warehouse is now a thriving cultural centre, dedicated to the art and culture of Denmark’s former North Atlantic colonies Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland.

      North Atlantic artists are often inspired by the landscapes, light, and nature sounds of their region, which lends a fiercely visual, bodily, and musical quality to their art.

      The rustic, maritime spirit of the old warehouse with its raw plank floors and exposed rafter ceilings offers a unique and beautiful contrast to the artworks on display.

      Nordic food

      Visit the cultural centre to get a first-hand impression of this intriguing harbourfront area. The North Atlantic House is open year-round and offers a lovely café where you can rest your weary bones.

      On the Nordatlantens Brygge Harbour Front, you will also find the Faroese and Greenlandic Representations, the Icelandic Embassy, and the national tourist boards of these three countries.

      Church of Our Saviour

      0.61 km

      Every year, more than 200.000 people climb the stairway to the top where Our Saviour stands on his globe and overlooks the royal city of Copenhagen.

      Our Savior's Church's iconic tower contains six large bells and a fantastic carillon which holds special meaning to Christianshavn. With as many as 48 bells, the carillon plays its delicate melodies over the neighbourhood daily.

      On the last 150 external steps, you will, as far as the eye can see, experience one of the best views over Copenhagen with an overview of the city from every angle at 86 meters. This is not an ascent for the vertiginously challenged!

      Access to the tower is limited during crowded hours because of narrow stairs and pathways. Therefore, we recommend prior booking to avoid waiting time for purchasing tickets on-site and to reserve a spot in the tower at a preferred time.

      The staff can require online booking upon arrival during busy hours if the tower has reached its maximum visitor capacity. 

      The tower closes for safety reasons in the event of precipitation and strong winds.

      The large baroque church, consecrated in 1696, holds a magnificent organ from 1698 and a beautiful altar. Furthermore, the church has 40 elephants symbolising the absolute monarchy and the Order of the Elephant, the highest order in Denmark. Can you find all the elephants in the church?

      Opening hours of the church are daily from 11.00 – 15.30.

      The tower is open in 2023 from February 9th until December 31st. Opening hours are daily from 09:00 – 20:00.

      Please note: The church is closed for sightseeing during services. 

      The entrance to the church is free of charge for all. If you wish to climb the tower, you can book your visit here.

      0.76 km

      This controversial area is loved by many but has been a turning point for strong debate. For visitors, the area is subject to safety concerns due to criminal activity and drug dealing. 

      It is important to know that dealing, buying and possessing illegal substances in any form is against Danish legislation.

      Read more about safety in Christiania below.

      Creative housing

      Christiania was founded in 1971 when a group of people cut a hole in the fence to the military barracks in Bådmandsgade. Soon, the area was known for Pusher Street, where you could buy hash and pot – but no hard drugs – from various stalls.

      Today, many of the original settlers still live in the collectively controlled village, and the area has a clear 70s feel to it.

      A lot of the people living in Christiania built their homes themselves, giving the area an extremely interesting architectural feel. And you will find a variety of eco-restaurants, workshops, galleries and music venues offering all sorts of cultural experiences.


      Christiania existed under special conditions for 40 years, with constant conflicts and clashes between the local Christianites and the Danish state.

      After many years of uncertainty about the future of Christiania, an agreement was entered in 2011, which meant that on 1 July 2012, a foundation, the Foundation Freetown Christiania, was founded.

      The foundation now owns the entire part of Christiania located outside the protected ramparts and leases buildings and land on the ramparts, which are still owned by the state. Part of the money is raised by selling the symbolic Christiania shares.

      Safety in Christiania

      It is important that you are aware that Christiania is not like any other neighbourhood in Copenhagen.

      According to Copenhagen police the area around Pusher Street is controlled by organised criminal groups. The residents themselves have adopted a set of rules for security reasons, which they strongly advise visitors to abide by.

      They discourage visitors from photographing, running and talking on the phone in the area, especially in and around Pusher Street. At the main entrance, you will find a sign listing the rules, which the residents also advise visitors not to photograph.

      Over the years, there have been reports of acts of violence linked to organised criminal activities, and it is advised to check the recommendations of the local authorities before planning a visit to Christiania. Read about current affairs from Copenhagen Police or visit their account on X.

      Guided tours

      Locals give guided tours of the area. Every day throughout the summer (26 June  – 31 August) and every weekend the rest of the year.

      This is a really good way to experience the special Christiania vibe. The guides have lived most of their lives here, and they give a personal tour of this alternative community.

      The tours are in English and Danish and start from the main entrance at 15:00. The price is DKK 40 in cash to the guide.

      Amalienborg Palace

      0.8 km

      At Amalienborg Palace in the heart of Copenhagen, you can visit the seat of one of the world's oldest monarchies and go behind the scenes in a real royal palace. The palace is a must for anyone with a taste for royal history. Don't miss the palace square where you can watch the unforgettable changing of the guards.   

      The Changing of The Royal Guard

      Amalienborg is famous for its royal guard, known as The Royal Life Guard. Every day, you can watch the changing of the guards as they march from their barracks by Rosenborg Castle through the streets of Copenhagen to Amalienborg, often accompanied by music. The changing of the guard takes place at noon.

      Amalienborg is made up of four identical buildings. These are Christian VII's Palace (also known as Moltke's Palace, used as a guest residence), Frederik VIII's Palace (also known as Brockdorff's Palace, home of His Majesty King Frederik X, Her Majesty Queen Mary, and their children), Christian IX's Palace (also known as Schack's Palace, home of Queen Margrethe II) and Christian VIII's Palace (also known as Levetzau's Palace, used as a guest palace for Prince Joachim and Princess Benedikte). It's in this building you'll find Amalienborg Museum.

      Amalienborg Museum 

      A visit to Amalienborg Museum gives you access to the private interiors of the most recent kings and queens along with an exhibit on the monarchy today with its many traditions. It's a behind-the-scenes trip sure to delight any royal fans. 

      The scope of the museum stretches back 150 years to Christian IX and Queen Louise, who were known as "the in-laws of Europe" because four of their children ascended to the thrones of England, Greece, Russia, and Denmark.

      Royal history comes to life

      The rooms of Christian IX, Queen Louise, and their descendants are still intact, so a visit is like a journey through time. Each room reflects the modern taste of its period and the personalities of the kings and queens, whether it is in military, Victorian, or knightly style.

      TRAVEL TIP: With a Copenhagen Card in hand you get free admission to Amalienborg and over 80 attractions as well as free public transportation in the whole capital region. 

      The large garden room offers an insight into modern royal life and the monarchy in the 21st century. Royal life entails many duties and traditions, and there are plenty of opportunities to explore them and gain an understanding of what it means to be royal today.

      On most days, there is admittance to the Gala Hall and the other magnificent rooms on the Piano Nobile. The royal reception rooms are still used by the royal family for representative purposes.
