While the original idea of Christiania might be attractive to some people it is sad that the area is in such a bad shape and nobody seems to care. I have full respect for the hippie ideology but don’t understand why it should include totally...More

Well worth your time. One of the strangest communities I've ever seen. Completely independent of Denmark (google it) Christiania has a feel 50% of utopia and 50% of burning man without the live music. Don't go there if you are sensitive to marijuana smoke, because...More

A visit to Copenhagen is not complete without visiting Christiana - the hippie enclave, as it's described. Spend some time here shopping and people-watching! A MUST-SEE, MUST-DO!!

Ungoverned area of Copenhagen, lots of drugs openly sold on the market. A contrast to the rest of the city! Good vibes!

This place is a large comune which houses around 800 people. Its a mixture of arty bohemian people. You can see that therw are residents from many different backgrounds. There is a heavy drugs presence. There are a few shops and bars located around.

Careful going unless you are in a group. Residents tend to make up rules as they go along so e.g. may suddenly grab your phone if you take a photo (which is allowed despite what they will tell you). The neighbourhood is for “alternatives”, which...More

Christianshavn
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By,

some of which has been turned into restaurants or even
serve as fully furnished homes. The best known
attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free
