maybe I don't know how to appreciate "alternative art" but for me that is a place full of people which lost track in their life.

The place is very different and difficult to describe, one has to see and if you like the street art and colorful artistic stuff, you would definitely want to see this part of the town.

I honestly can not understand what is so special about this place, why tourists desire to visit it...I mean, seriously the only thing you can do here is to take photos of the psychotic sculptures for your instagram. That's it! The place itself poorly constructed and full of garbage, which is called "art". Even the clubs in here are worthless.

A place that you have to see with your own eyes. The contrast between the next door museums and office buildings makes this place even more interesting and shocking.

Probably one of the most exciting cultural places in the world. Former prison that was transformed into clubs, galeries, hostel ect is really friendly, colorful and nice.

I had a chance to see it only during our bike tour, stopped there to have a break and it was unfortunately raining, but the place is great for street art photography and to hang out with some friends in the evening, when the bars there are open.

A bit outside the centre, in former barracks that would have been used in a different way, artists squatted there years ago. Plenty of cool up to date works. Well worth the walk out.

I've never been to Denmark but I hear Christiana looks something like that. At night, it's definitely appropriate for people who are a bit edgy. No heels and fancy dressed here. Usually metal and rock music is playing, but there is also an amazing gay bar there with awesome pop music. During the day the atmosphere changes and is appropriate... More

It was closed when we went, but it was still great to see all the street art and alternative architecture. Must be even better at night!
