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.

My friends and I spent some quality time in Christiania when we were travelling in Denmark. This place came to a big surprise to me as I was expecting it to be very sketchy, but I find it to be very chill and easy going(duh, obviously). Go pick up some beer and enjoy a sunny day there.

We visited this place on a Sunday and it was quite busy with other fellow tourists. It's got an interesting lay out and got many interesting wee stalls and eating places. I did feel slightly awkward from the way the locals were behaving so would recommend going in the daytime with others. It's competent different to the rest of Copenhagen,... More

Christiania is definitely worth a visit while in Copenhagen. The atmosphere is different from anywhere I'd ever been- very lively but relaxed. Plenty to see- it's well worth taking the time to look around!

I should state that I was with great friends all in our early thirties, it was a Saturday night, and it was Christiania's Birthday Party. There were food trucks and soooo many different areas playing various types of music. An awesome little cafe tucked away in a pre WWII building. Beer seems to cost much less here then other spots...

If you are in Copenhagen, you should visit the free town of Cristiania. It is totally different from everything I have ever seen. They have their own way of living, with them own rules. At first I got a bit scary, because it is dirty and different. However, it totally worth it to do a free walking tour there, they... More

I'd say the feelings that Christiania may invoke range from "I regret that I did not have this experience when I was younger" to "What's there to see?" I suppose it is useful to look at this walk as a sort of anthropological experience. Yes, a hippie commune in the past but it is fascinating how some ideas that were... More

A really interesting place with lots of artwork. It also has areas where photos shouldn't be taken. It's a nice place to walk around and have a look. See how life is very different here in comparison with the rest of Copenhagen. Not really much to do here if you aren't a green smoker so have a look and take... More

This is a love it or hate place. We found it quite fascinating and walked the length and breadth of it. It's not a way of life that I'd like and I can't see how it appeals to some. You can't take photographs around the main area (Pusher St) where cannabis is openly sold and tolerated and I would say... More

Probably a bad time to go on a wet November morning, but the only people who seemed to be there were either tourists, or small, shifty looking blokes with things to sell. I would imagine it would be completely different on a bright summers evening. Even my mid 20's children were unimpressed, apart from some impressive graffiti.
