Overview

This hippy enclave is an alternative community unto itself, with local handicrafts and a disproportionate number of vegetarians, artists and young people. Go for a walk around the lake or check out one of the watering holes. Best to visit during the day.

Huge traditional , historical, hippie neighborhood for free and open minds. You'll find everything there: food, drinks, etc, etc... Do not take pictures It's totally a must in your visit in Copenhagen! They also have handcraft stores, nice natural lakes, bars and fun Go

We spent several hours on a tour of Christiania while visiting Copenhagen in June 2018. Christiania is a hippie community dating back to the 1970s and the tour that we took was a small group tour (daily at 3:00) led by a member of the...More

Any visitor to Copenhagen should see Christiania. It is a counter culture community in the heart of Copenhagen. Christiania is self-governing and free. The residents are throwbacks to the hippies of the 60's. There are a few businesses - selling trinkets and art and a...More

Take cash - there’s a lot for sale but, unlike everywhere else in Denmark, no one takes cards. But it’s a hippy commune so it’s unlikely anyone’s paying much tax. There are things to buy beyond the innumerable hash stalls so, if you wanted a...More

I enjoyed this excursion but kind of felt like I was spying on people that wanted to be left alone. It was a little creepy to me. It was something different to see though.

A must see if you are interested in the free side of this most unorthodox community. Peace and love flow through you. Interesting people and a trip off the beaten path.

Our experience in Christiania was nothing more than ok, and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend anyone go unless you’re looking to enjoy the different laws they have from Copenhagen. It’s not particularly pretty compared to the beauty of Copenhagen and there is little to do or...More

Freedom is the best word to describe Christiania as a community. It's the perfect example how an alternative society could function, with it's limitations and potentials. People are very easy going and prices are affordable. I don't give 5 points because I felt a lack...More

Christianshavn
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By,
you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old
brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century,
and canals which are home to many boats and ships,
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
town” of residents who squat on a former military
