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.

This bastion of commune living should feel be a colourful insight into alternative living and to an extent it is. But we made the error of going early evening when "Pusher Alley" was starting to fill up with young men - many of whom wore scarfs across the lower of their faces - were already out selling drugs. We felt... More

Christiania is nice. It was cool walking around on a sunny February morning! Lots of Bob Marley T shirts and hats, too.

This parallel community, the free city of Christiania, is an absolute must see! You can get free tours there every day. In the "pusher street" they sell marijuana. It is not legal, but the trade is done openly. However, the place is very safe. There is never any problems here. Only when the police comes, which they rarely do. They... More

I was expecting a super hippie, liberal, fun, interesting neighborhood, full of art or something, but it was quite disappointing, there wasn't as much murals or art as I thought, and mostly I saw rubbish piled around and some (very few) people selling bracelets and things like that; but it was mostly empty and quiet. Definitely not the place I... More

This hippy commune has a great atmosphere and a fun vibe. It's great to take a stroll through, stop for a beer and a kebab. While walking along the water you'll see all sorts of great houses!

A colourful and interesting place to visit. The art and sculptures were fun and the whole place reminded me of a grown up version on the "camps" we used to make as children. All very friendly and peaceful with a sweet smell floating in the air down "Pushers Street". Well worth a visit.

Go later in the day when things are more active. We visited in the morning and things were still a bit subdued.

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighborhood Profile
Christianshavn
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.
