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.

Whilst I can appreciate the ideology behind this community, the place felt quite sad. There was little of a community feel and we were quite pleased to leave.

Disappointed with this area. Just feels seedy and run down. Yes if you want weed it is everywhere here and as you walk along people try and sell it to you. People walking around in a daze. To be honest we were very quickly bored and just wanted a beer but left the area to go somewhere else. Wouldn't really... More

This counterculture enclave was interesting to see, but I have to say we probably would not have rescheduled our time to go over there had we known in advance what it was. It was interesting to see all of the residents, but frankly there really wasn't a whole lot to do here in the middle of an afternoon. It is... More

Much has changed after the recent unfortunate events, but still it's a interesting place to visit. It's an unique atmosphere and a different, but interesting culture. Take the time to visit the place and enjoy it to the most.

Great place to hang around and grab a beer, specially for young people. It basically works a s a big terrace in summer, with lots of 20-30 something groups of travelers and locals that go there to drink and smoke before the night.

One of the oddly famous tourist destinations in Copenhagen. Little far from the main city and famous for weed. Good place to hang out in cafes around.

I found Copenhagen itself expensive, quiet, a little bland and overrated. It's a beautiful city don't get me wrong but I felt the vibe was uptight in parts so Christiania was a place I really enjoyed. We ventured in there around 4pm and spent a good hour exploring-I probably wouldn't have stayed after dark on my first visit. Pusher Street... More

I'm a young 50 I grant you but I loved this place and the whole island. Felt more down to earth than the other bits of Copenhagen and was a wonder to explore. Leave your prejudices at the entrance and marvel that people can still find alternative ways to live in these modern times. There are drugs, Marijuana the smell... More

I didn't know much about this place until going to it and seeing everything for myself. Lovely little community, no cars or bikes allowed, very colourful, open to nature, quirky houses, everyone is friendly. A nice place to have a stroll.

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighborhood Profile
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 area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
