Christianshavn 8, 2012

I used to live on the very tip of Amager, just across from Christianshavn. Often on Sundays Peter and I would catch a late brunch, walk around Christianshavn, stop for coffee at Café Wilders, walk some more and bring home pizza for dinner from the restaurant on the corner. Café Wilders is one of the oldest cafés in the Amager/Christianshavn, if not The oldest – a unique institution from 1984 when bars were as common as café are today.

Christianshavn 6, 2012

Christianshavn was pretty slummy when I was a kid, but now all the old houses have been restored. For reasons unknown to me old houses in the Copenhagen area tend to be painted yellow.

As you may notice in the background most of the streets on Christianshavn are still cobbled stones – so consider your footwear when you visit!
