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.

This is a must see area. We had a local friend that lives in the area as our tour guide. Our friend took us to the most amazing places we could have imagine. Great location. Amazing reataurants.

It has very different architecture than other parts of the city with lots of graffiti and some quaint houses. The place has nice quirky park attached to it and you can end... More

We've visited Christiania on several occations. When the weather is nice you can hang out and enjoy some music, great food and drinks. The atmosphere is nice and people are friendly. Stroll around and enjoy this special place. Just follow the simple rules; no running or photo in Pusher Street 😉

Reading about this site after our trip, is what prompted me to review. Please take the time to go; I will even hire a private tour conductor that knows about this place and its culture/politics, to showcase the main attractions.

Have been here several times through the last years. Since last time (three years ago) the drug sales has been commercialized with boots with hooded sellers. Not positive devolopment. Anyway It is still a curiosity, but much less so

I honestly can't see why people consider this a tourist attraction, unless you are interested in buying weed. I visited Christiania earlier this week thinking I was going to see some sort of Eco-zen like community. I couldn't have been more wrong. The place was dirty and unkempt. Drugs were sold by men wearing balaclavas. A fight broke out at... More

That's a very interesting place, the smells and the people with masks were a little bit scary. If you want to see a place out of standards, it is the right place but remember, no photos, no running.

Advice from all the current travel books, including Copenhagen's own official site is not to carry a camera, and to be careful. For a 'society' set up on ideals, there is a list of rules when you enter, and there are rules throughout; e.g. 'drug free zone' in a restaurant. Although there is a building yard for materials, and people... More

If you want to spice up your evening and meet some crazy outstanding people just walk through the gates of Christiania and enter a world that has been forgotten by time and cheech and chong. At first it might seem very intimidating and foreign but the people are as harmless as they are high. Head for the most popular bar... More

Best place in Copenhagen! Love it! I can highly recommend this place. Always very good karma, music and happy people! If you feel for it, you can smoke a joint, but beware, its illegal to smoke weed in Denmark, for now ;)
