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 heard so much about this area and was really looking forward to enjoying a different type of setting - alas, other than hype this place has nothing to offer. Unless you consider some dinky market selling cheap trinkets made in China a "must see"....More

Want to see a very laid back area? Go here! It resembles an old school hippie hangout. Food, drinks & more are widely available on terraces. Copenhagen is a great place but do visit this if you have the time!

Christania is very different from other areas of Copenhagen. It is an area of approximately 900 inhabitants. The area was originally disused and then inhabited by "squatters " Who then had squatters rights. It is now a tourist attraction that is well worth a visit....More

I really liked the woods and Street art. The residents we came across were very welcoming. Not a good idea to take photos or be disruptive. I would recommend going to see how this community is set up and what a haven considering how close...More

Got told about this place by a local and visited it, was pleasantly surprised at how cool it was. Good food, drinks (and people selling hash) good vibe for all, even families

you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old

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

Hello☺️ I guess you can visit it any time, there is a part of the city where people live. If I were you I would go with a tour then you get explanations about it 😀 Enjoy your visit 😉
