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.

Was a little disappointed, but not sure what I expected. There are little shops and cafes, but not a lot of people or interesting things to see. Maybe we were too early in the day or maybe it's just not for us. Not the most...More

We visited Christiania out of curiosity - we liked the idea of a Freetown and organic street food. The place is grotty and feels unloved. We were told off by a grungy drunk guy for taking photos. There was no art scene that we could...More

Kind of sad and depressing. I was here ten years ago and I don't remember it feeling as run down back then.

A unique view of counterculture, but nothing super exciting if you aren't into marijuana. Lots of people expressing their love of marijuana in different ways through graffiti, clothing for sale, or marijuana for sale. Otherwise, a part of the city that feels much dirtier than...More

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
