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.

When talked to people that visited christiania they were so charmed by it, and when I arrived what I've seen was just a shadow of movement that probably lived in that place 20 years ago. Now is just a sad place with people hiding their and dealing drugs becouse thay can. Big disappointment in my eyes. Weed they sell is... More

Christiania is a great place to visit in the city of Copenhagen. Although there are some illicit activities (pot smoking) going on here, it is a very safe location in the city and in the spirit of "free Christiania" the police turn a blind eye. Even if you don't smoke you can go and hang out with friends and have... More

I been in Copenhagen in the summer 2014 while I was traveling across Europe. The second days in that wonderful city I went to Christiania and I really appreciated that visit! A bridge links this place to the city and as soon as you walk there you can really notice the different architecture of the place, everything in there is... More

Couldn't believe the morons in this place. Blokes stood around a fire drum, trying to look intimidating, and actually screaming at people, and I do mean screaming, because of a camera. I had a camera around my neck, and if he had screamed at me like that, he would've lost some teeth. Full of expensive, touristy stalls, and the most... More

Ok my review is dated. I visited this enclave back in 2012 and took a pass when I returned in 2014. It's a bit of a ramshackled place with old buildings, old and young hippies, and a dog circus. I'll say this though. The people were a friendly, tolerant lot and very self sufficient. I understand that it literally is... More

This place was cool. when you first enter, there's a sign with 3 rules: have fun, no running, and no pictures. If you're into freedom, art, and alternative lifestyles, this is the place to visit. We had a great time!

I have not written a less than positive review before, so it does not come naturally. I should say first that I absolutely loved Copenhagen. I really wanted to like Christiania and was looking forward to visiting. I have visited many "alternative" communities around the world and was interested in how Christiania would compare. Sadly, it really did not come... More

I have been to Christiania a few times now and in sep. Last year i went there to show my family this very special place. It is different and a gem in a large city, coasy outdoor bar, various places to eat, art, nature, all types of people, selling booths, all very interesting. But be careful not to use your... More

Christiania was one of the many things I was looking forward to coming to Copenhagen. It's a self-governing hippie commune. I didn't know what to expect coming in -- people told me that it was a bit scary but i never felt uncomfortable or scared. It's a very easy place to stumble upon by accident and definitely worth a walk... More
