A Walking Tour of Christiansted
The best way to feel the beat of a city is to walk through its
streets. Leave yourself at least one hour to stroll through the
wedge of streets and alleys near King's Wharf. These, once
the heart of the Danish capital, are lined with shops and ho-
tels inside colonial buildings and in tree-lined courtyards.
The National Park Service has preserved the area, and five
specific buildings within it, as a historical site.
Make your first stop The Scalehouse on King's Wharf.
You'll spot the yellow building by the cannon in front of it.
This building from the mid-1800s was used to weigh and in-
spect imports and exports. It's now occupied by the Virgin
Islands National Parks Office. Stop in for a free map of
the area. Diagonally across the wharf (now used for parking)
is the Old Danish Customs House , started in 1751 and
completed in 1830. Customs were collected here and it later
served as post office and library.
