Welcome to Kanalhuset

On the historic island Christianshavn – with its many heritage protected buildings and cobble stoned streets – you will find Kanalhuset along the Christianshavn Canal. With a view over the canal and the tall masts we are located in the middle of Copenhagen; 300 meters from Christianshavn metro station and across the bridge from the Royal Theatre, Nyhavn, Amalienborg Castle and the main shopping street Strøget. The building dates back to 1754 and now contains 12 boutique hotel rooms, large and small meeting rooms, 14 hotel apartments, a bar and a restaurant where we serve the meal of the evening every day at 7pm in Spisestuen.

We are open every day from 7.00 am – 10 pm for breakfast, lunch, coffee, dinner and drinks.

We look forward to seeing you.

At Kanalhuset we eat together every day at 7 pm in Spisestuen. Our chefs prepare the dinner with seasonal ingredients and an everchanging menu. The meal of the day is served as a social dinner with our neighbors, residents and other curious guests!

We always offer an alternative option for vegetarians if you inform us when you book a table.

We recommend that you show up 6.30 pm and the meal costs 150 DKK per person.

Everyone is welcome and we’re looking forward to see you!

Monday 20.00-22.00
100 DKK

“Croquis” implies sketching, thus we focus on creating unfinished and authentic drawings with a duration between 30 seconds and 10 minutes. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, we all share that we produce unfinished drawings, as it is not realistic to complete a drawing in just 30 seconds or 10 minutes, regardless of one’s skill level. During the croquis drawing, we do not see realism as the primary goal, but instead consider the body as a frame of reference and source of inspiration, which we can freely interpret

Practical information:
Bring your own paper or sketchbook and something to draw with.
The doors close at 20:00
