Always worth a visit here whilst in Copenhagen. Quirky houses, good healthy food, interesting characters. I always make a trip here whilst in Denmark.

If you are prepared to meet weird, angry or threating types when you want to take a picture of people and fancy houses its an exiting place. Lately people from the muncipality was obstructed when they tried to build a bicycle lane. Intersting place, but not for everyone on a holiday...

not really much to see or do. A few uninteresting places to eat and nothing much else there. Looked like any other average neighborhood anywhere

Ok, this place is not for everyone. If you can't handle weird and excentric people, you will not enjoy it here. However, if you like to experience something new and a bit out of the ordinary, Christiania is certainly worth a visit. The place feels a bit run down, it has seen better times. We enjoyed our evening in the... More

I don't know if you really have to go to Christiania.I have been there on an afternoon, it is like a hippie community, some parts are very interesting, others are nice and others are not that nice... so it's really for those who are into this. You are not allowed to take any pictures and people live there free from... More

This place just feels like hanging out at a festival, minus the music, which i think may have been coming later. There is nothing wrong with that, its just not a place of particular interest for me, but if u wanna kick back a la outside the cider bus at Glastonbury, it could be ideal!

Copenhagen is rightfully a Mecca for foodies and design, and a showcase to how we are all going to live (hopefully) in 2030. But it has an island of nostalgia that you won't find anywhere else in the world. Christiania takes you back to the late 1960s and 70s, it's a trip in the time-tunnel. The people who occupy the...

With everything that we had read about Christiania and the idea behind it we were very interested in checking it out for ourselves. While I'm glad I saw it and would still recommend to others that they go as it's a completely one of a kind place I was definitely disappointed. The area is not well cared for by the... More

While it was not the highlight of our trip to Copenhagen, I'm still glad we went for the day. Very interesting atmosphere - the smell of marijuana highly present. Dirty and slightly sketchy but everyone was truly nice and lot's of tourists around. I wouldn't go at night though.
