Provides an interesting topic to talk about with your travel partner as you stroll around the green area where the different houses are located.

It was an interesting experience to go from a nice clean tidy city to a place where there are men selling drugs under a camo tarps and people just smoking drugs openly, everywhere. Worth a visit but not much there.

I dont think we took enough time here, as we only went from the entrance, through Pusher street, to the food area, and back out again. I wish I could have taken pictures in the Green Light district as this had the nicest graffiti. However there is some nice artwork outside the Green Light district but I felt uncomfortable having...

A place of approx 300 acres in the middle of the city claiming to be separate state. they have their own laws and rules of living. no cars allowed, they sell weed and plenty of restaurants to earn their living. they make their own beer. Be mindful of not taking pictures and just enjoy the walk around this new 'state'... More

Full of guys looking to smoke dope. There was some art, not great, some quite good street art, but nothing amazing. No music, not scary just dirty and dull. There is a lot of information about agro, but if you don't look for it your fine. If you've ever walked through a council estate in London, it's like that but... More

Christiania is an great place where you can experience a piece of danish culture that is important in the explanation of what happen in Denmark with the social revolution.

I have been going to Christiania since in my twenties. 40 now. I make a point of visiting every few years or so. Brilliant for a laugh, smoke and dance. Wonderful place to step outside our preoccupations of time and productivity. If you are of a pedantic nature or OCD stay clear.

Really interesting place!! It's a bummer you can't take pictures because there was an area in the beginning that had these really cool stand up "stalls" with these cool Mad Max looking unstructured umbrella type covers. Where people were standing and talking and hanging out. We petted a cool Pittbull and the guys hesitated but let my sisters take a... More

This must have been an incredibly exciting place to be decades ago but now it seems seedy and dull . Lots of dopey looking ,mumbling people dogs . Some mysterious food stalls with dysentery wriiten all over them . An amusing touch as you leave : a sign says you are now entering the European Union . The Danish Govt... More

I think it is great that this place exists and it was really good to be somewhere with no commercialism, the houses are funky and the vibe is relaxed (could be due to the hash everybody was smoking around us...). It was really interesting to spend some time wandering around here but don't even think about using their public toilets.... More
