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...more

I can only assume that the negative reviews of this place are from people who didn't research what the place is like beforehand. Having done our research, we went, and the place was far better than we had expected. It's a total contrast to the...More

Didn’t plan to come here but since it was close to Church of Our Saviour, might as well give it a try. Nerve racking place to visit. Best to go in a pair or in a group. An entirely different image of Danmark, graffiti arts,...More

I was a little anxious about visiting Christiania in Copenhagen. I'd heard warnings about "no photography" rules" but I needn't have feared. We strolled through on a sunny afternoon and of course there were many stalls set up where men sold cannabis (I assume that's...More

The entire Christiania thing started as an experiment, where people could live without restricting rules. I was meant to be a hippy culture centre. At times criminals had too much control, dealing with illegal substances, but this is now somehow regulated. Many people have lived...More

Are you a weed lover? You will love christiania. Its sold everywhere and the air is totally filled with it. At a certain point pictures are no longer allowed. Also be careful because of creepy people around

I visited the place out of curiosity, because it is world-famous. It was a complete waste of time. If you come here expecting a hippy-commune vibe, flower children and make-love-not-war, you'll be sorely dissapointed. The place is nothing but a slum, dirty, smelly and derelict....More

This place is very deceptive. It’s not the care-free, relaxed attitude environment we were led to believe. It’s run down, dirty, and frequented by vagrants, drug addicts, and social deviants. Drugs are openly sold on the street and you can expect to be harassed by...More

Great garden supplies and products. Met amazing friendly students in the cold that played some fun games and shared their stories

This former anarchists' commune tries w-a-y too hard to be cool, anarchist and nonconformist. The only reason to visit might be the interesting and colorful street art, but even then it is more a Disneyesque version of 1960s counterculture striving to get a share of...More

Except some interesting graffiti on the walls there’s nothing really interesting to see. The place looks like a post apocalyptic neighborhood, dirty, with poorly maintained buildings. Some people sell light drugs (maybe even heavier ...) on the street, there are all kinds of hovels arranged...More

Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By,
you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old
brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century,
and canals which are home to many boats and ships,
some of which has been turned into restaurants or even
serve as fully furnished homes. The best known
attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free
town” of residents who squat on a former military

Thank you! I have heard we need to get there early. Would you suggest an hour in advance is enough?
