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.

“Alternative lifestyle”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

It's a really nice place, the only danger could be the dogs walking through there, since one of them barked at us but its human called him and we were fine. If you wannna buy something but have no cash you can exchange money at a coffeehouse on pusher street. You can buy hash and weed on pusher street but at winter it seems a little uncomfortable to smoke outside.

“Unique and Utopian”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

At an abandoned Naval base in Christianshavn lies the self-proclaimed utopian community of Free Christiania --an independent communion in Copenhagen that claims its place in the world as its own, a small community of people who pursue art and their own passions, free from the pressures and demands of society. Even a conservative like myself can't help but admire the success of this commune that has thrived for about four decades now: this utopian community built on tolerance and self-actualization that is based on a respect of each other's independent value system. Utopian? Yes --but hey, it works.

“Very interesting place”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Christiania is a small neighborhood in Copenhagen.
Very colorful and interesting, totally worth a visit.

Part of Christiania is what they call - Green light district where light drugs (marijuana, hash, skunk, etc) are freely sold.
There are also a couple of bars where you can get a beer and sit for a smoke.

Unless you are offended by marijuana smokers or you are an anti-drug activist, visit Christiania :)
