For a look at one of Copenhagen’s lively and more popular residential neighborhoods that’s off the tourist-trampled path, catch the Metro to Christianshavn station. In summer, canal-side restaurants offer tasty meals, and sometimes free live jazz. Cozy pubs offer friendly local conversation, and most Danes are happy to practice their English with you. From the Metro station, wander north toward the canal on Torvegade. If you’re feeling energetic, you can continue across the bridge over the canal. From there, it’s a 20-minute walk back to the town center.
