Owner description: 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.

“Interesting ”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

I went there by bike and was happy to see the people cleaning there its not so much of a mess as some say. Anyway we entered the green light district and were kind of suprised but everything seemed fine. I saw some people selling pipes amd stuff. Then we bought something to eat, it was quite nice. Further down the street the smell of hash kicked in and there were like 5 people with tables full of it, trying to sell some. Leaving the green light district you could enter a beautiful park full of weed smell and rubbish left from smoking it. All in all it is nice to see I didn't feel unsafe one secound but you shouldn't bring kids and you will see some messed up people.

“don't go if you have anything against weed, ”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

that much is obvious. however we enjoyed having a walk around and just seeing how different it is to the rest of very neat and orderly Copenhagen. pusher street is just full of locals selling and smoking weed, but walk a bit further, grab a drink and head down to the lake which is really nice (although, of course, also crowded with potheads).

“Scary”

This is a city in a city. Its a drug haven hippie type area. Its graffitied and dirty. Unless you are here to get approached for drugs avoid

“Atypical place”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Of course when you're arrived and you passed by the Green Light district that show you this place is totally different than the rest Copenhague.
But don't stuck your idea on this open-market, because it's interesting to discover this alternativ culture.
Walk around the village, along the river, through the hidden paths, the backyards and the micro-hoods, contemplate the hand-made architecture of the houses, sometimes really cosy, watch the Copenhague youngs people laid on the grass ...
Up to you to do you what you feel like in this place, but follow the rules.

“Fun in the sun”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Love Camden, hate photos, love hip hop and relaxing. This place would be perfect if it weren't so crowded.
