The town of Christiansted offers a host of things to see and activities to pursue during your stay. Our rich colonial past features dramatic brick and mortar Danish architecture throughout the downtown, with West Indian construction peppered throughout, extending from the historic area of the city center.
Completed in 1749, and later expanded in the 1830s, Fort Christiansvaern protected the town from pirates and other invaders. It once also served as a police station and courthouse. It was designated a National Historic Site in 1952 and now displays 1830s furnishings and an exhibit on local military history.
