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.

I thought this was going to be a place that would inspire people to be different but it was like looking at a festival ground after a festival... dirty, messy.. unkept.... this can be missed.. and sadly disappointed..

I spent several hours just walking around and taking in the inspiring atmosphere. There were green parks where people were playing guitar or smoking and having a good time. There were a few places to eat - including a lovely vegetarian restaurant. In some areas...More

There's nothing much here frankly, apart from some tatty stalls and dope shops. If you like watching people stoning away and think it's ever so cool buying marijuana openly, then come here. It was a nothing place, covered in graffiti and populated by rather boring...More

This is not a tourist attraction to "look for" this is a community full of wonderful people. If you are a tourist sure you are welcome but see it as a place to relax and wonder through, maybe sit by the water or take a...More

Looking back, I don't know why I visited Christiania. I felt so out of place while walking the dusty, kinda creepy pathways. I did not feel unwelcomed, it was just not a place for me.

Came across this wonderful hippie spot completely by accident. I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's so different it's well worth a visit. And a very short walk to Copenhagen Street Food, where you can have great food in a wonderful atmosphere.

Strange place! So it's a commune with people openly selling splifs in the street. We went during the day and felt quite safe. Some of the buildings were interesting but your basically walking through a run down village. Also your not allowed to take pictures...More

They don't sell weed in the street anymore and that's probably a good thing. They do sell tee shirts though. Interesting architecture without architects, very interesting people and beautiful views over the lake. Some areas can be a little intimidating if you go with a...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
