History of Kanalhuset

At Overgaden Oven Vandet 62 lies Kanalhuset from the year 1754. Throughout its more than 260 years the building has seen many out many lives and changes. In its initial stage the building was made as a social mobility school for appr. 200 boys from all over the Danish kingdom: Copenhagen, Norway, Schleswig-Holstein and the West Indies. The house has been used as a naval hospital for people injured at sea when Denmark was at its highest as a seafaring nation – both the navy and import/export of goods.

The house has held many roles throughout its long life and it has seen Christianshavn develop several times but most of all the house near the canal has always been a home.
