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.

Walking for about half hour from our hotel to visit the place under the rain, we found the place well worth the visit. Meet different side of Copenhagen with different people. Interesting to see the alternate life style and culture. Must visit, especially if you are in the area.

The whole place has a run down feel and is a mess - maybe just different to my expectations. It was interesting to see the balaclava wearing weed (or other) sellers and an eye opener for our teenage kids. Worth an hour if you are nearby but don't make it the sole reason for a trip into Copenhagen.

My husband and I went along to see what this was all about and quite frankly, I wish we had spent the time somewhere else. This place may have been about hippies at one time but all it is now is stalls of people in masks selling drugs and alcohol. I really felt that the "hippie culture" has long since... More

Christiana is a place that you won't expect in a city like Copenhagen. It's a different town on his own, with various shop, place to sleep, parcs, barber shop, bars, live houses... Very safe even at 1 am even with a smell common for those who visited Amsterdam ;)

We went there just to see what it is and it was what I expected-rough. The smell of pot was overwhelming, it was dirty and unpleasant. There were big dogs everywhere walking freely around and we got quite anxious and left very quickly. I dont understand how this place is allowed to be so central, just moments from the the... More

Firstly - Not suitable for children or anyone with a nervous disposition. The 'green zone' can be quite nerve wracking when you see the men wearing masks but when you talk to them, they're all really nice. We went on a Sunday and there was a free music festival on, the atmosphere was electric, everyone was dancing, it was brilliant.... More

I like Christiania it's a completely different city compared to anything in the world. The place has really changed for the better since I was last here. I definitely don't fit in here but I won't mind going for a beer and enjoy the place. Worth seeing and experience!

Ok so I don't smoke weed, however , it is in abundance here. I went for the experience of viewing a commune lifestyle. I am always fascinated exploring the way others live, Which is why I travel so often. I never find myself outside of my comfort zone because I am liberal enough to respect the life that others choose... More
