For a taste of the simple life but still within hailing distance of the hip and the cool, go visit an old part of town that has sprung to life around the canals. Don’t forget your camera as you cruise along the canals—there is just a range of picturesque sights gliding past: houseboats, ultra-modern glass constructions, 300-year-old timber warehouses, statues of 19th century Eskimo superstars, historical mills-turned-into-cafes…Freetown of Christiania is located in this area.
