Christianshavns Torv, the Christianshavn Square, is easily reached by bus no. 2A from the Town Hall Square or the Central Station. Situated right by the canal with its beautiful 19th century buildings, houseboats, and yachts, this square is an ideal starting point for a shopping expedition.
Christianshavns Bådudlejning og Café, 29, Overgaden neden Vandet, offering boat rentals and delicious café fare, has a unique canalside atmosphere that attracts people from all over the city. Just across the canal, at 45, Torvegade, is the equally popular Lagkagehuset Bageri og Konditori, a superb bakery packed with freshly-made bread, excellent sandwiches, and voluptuous mouth-watering cakes.
A little further down the road, in a building from the 18th century, you will find Inblik, at 38, Torvegade. A delightful interior design shop offering arts and crafts designs and indispensable pieces of bric-a-brac.
Porte à Gauche, at 20, Torvegade, is concerned with clothes styling, and the boutique has a regular clientele of dedicated fashion followers. Two expert stylists run this place, so expect that edge of exclusiveness, fingers firmly on the trend pulse, and keen eyes on personal style and detail.
Across the street at no. 31 in Shoe by Shoe you find a wide selection.
At the corner of Torvegade and Wildersgade the jewelry shop Aurum has interesting things in modern design.
Antipasti or sushi?
Back on Torvegade Cibi e Vini, at 28, tempt the tastes of local patrons with freshly-made Italian delicacies, hams, cheeses, and wines.
Devout sushi-lovers, on the other hand, have their taste buds pampered into submission at Sushi Saiko, at no 22. Delicious take-away menus are also available. So find a nice spot by the canal, and dig into your favourite sushis.
