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.

Came across by accident, and had to stroll around, I was not comfortable, but each to there own. Not a place I recommend and was surprised to find in Copenhagen

We walked around for 5-10 minutes on a quiet Sunday morning and said “ok, we saw it” and left. I would strongly suggest not visiting at night and not taking impressionable children as pot is openly sold. We also saw it from the water on...More

Dirty and run down. Not what it is made out to be. I would not recommend it to families with young children.

The Free State of Christiania is probably not for everyone. I enjoyed biking through, stopping for a smoothie, doing a bit of shopping (homemade goods, not smoking), and just soaking up the atmosphere. It is definitely a cool, hippie vibe with art, music, free thinking,...More

Really loved visiting this place. It’s a cross between an artist colony and a commune. I would have much better pics except was harshly scolded for having my phone in my hand as we strolled down Pusher Street. I wish That we’d stopped to talk...More

So very disappointed by our visit to Christiania which the woman at the tourist office had strongly recommended we visit. Run down, dirty, junky trinkets (most likely made in China), trash-strewn area. The 70s were known for mellow, positive, sweet people who revered ,"mother Earth"....More

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
