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.

As with the Red Light District in Amsterdam, we wanted to see what all the fuss was about but came away disappointed. Like others have noted, it's shabby and covered in graffiti. I found the visual clutter tiring and the smell of pot everywhere sickening....More

Christiania is a very interesting neighborhood in the middle of Copenhagen. The alternative style of life is evident in an area that is self called autonomous anarchist district of Copenhagen. Worth a visit.

I don't know if it is a place to like or not. But I am certain that it is a unique experience. The controversy of this place and the strangeness surrounding it would not be missed. This free city is ugly, untidy and reminded me...More

Not many houses are as colorful as the most famous one. And you are not allowed to take pictures of other houses, which is strange. I wouldn't go there alone and would always follow other tourists. I found it an interesting experience and the history...More

I really can't get that excited to see a shabby market and people selling weed on the streets. It might be a commune but I've seen communes where the people have been a lot more proud of their surroundings and dwellings. I'm glad I went...More

Coming from Portland OR and having spent time on Telegraph Avenue, East Village in days of old, SF/Haight, etc, there's not much here of note. Since weed is illegal in most of Europe (legal where I'm from), Christiania attracts an international crowd looking for some...More

Said to be a utopia, Christiania is certainly worth the visit. Christiania sees itself as a free country - with its own self governance. Plenty of crafts as well as canibis and hashish products openly for sale. Kind gentle place by all accounts. A note:...More

A beautiful little freehaven that has been there for over 40 years, showing us that anarchism-inspired autonomous communities can work (very well, I might add). A must visit in Copenhagen.

Awful cannabis market. Tourists who don´t know how to behave. You don´t see there genuine habitants. I believe it was once something. Not anymore. However, you can find there lovely corners.

Unless you want to walk through an open air marijuana market I wouldn't bother visiting here. There are much better places to spend time in Copenhagen.

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
