Overview

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.

We walked through here on the way back from the street food market and was underwhelmed. The whole place is a bit of a dump and seems just set up for tourists to smoke pot. People didn't seem very friendly around the centre. There were...More

First of all, I didn’t realize what this place was before I went. I heard it was a town that governs itself within the city of Copenhagen, the spray painted art looked super cool, and they were having a music festival. So..my friend and I...More

Interesting concept of an anarchical type society set in the capital. Glad I got to see it but if you’ve got limited time I wouldn’t be too pushed to prioritise it over of other attractions. A short walk past locals in various states of disguise...More

I would recommend a short visit to this place if just to broaden your horizons. The place smells of weed and definitely quite a sight to see open drug pedalling and everyone smoking. It's a bit of a dump but that's part of the experience.

It's another side of Copenhagen that you need to see. Not much to do but people watch and enjoy a beer -- but it's an eye opening experience.

Hippies abound, nice little shops. A couple places to eat, sit at the picnic tables with a lot of special smoke.

I found this area fascinating. First off, it's very close and easy across the wonderful pedestrian bridge (from Nyhavn towards Church of Our Saviour). It was gritty, different, scary at times, sweet and overall very interesting and contrasting to wherever you live or usually visit....More

Christianshavn
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By,

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
