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.

Certainly an interesting place to walk through to get a sense of a "Free State". But if you aren't into scoring a bit of funky weed this brief sojourn left me rather underwhelmed! There appear to be some "organicky" looking places to eat but I...More

Looks like an old hippie village inhabited by dropouts and druggies. Slightly interesting to see and you can get moderately high from the second hand smoke. Lots of smoking and drinking early in the day plus pot openly for sale. What more can you ask...More

I can both sides of the negative/ positive review argument. I see people wishing to live an alternative, yet positive, life by being part of their community and adding value to their way of life. Then I see drunk layabouts, who sit drinking beer and...More

Went for a stroll through Freetown Christiania and felt it was a very interesting experience. Lots going on (food, drinks, music - and of course drugs being openly sold and smoked) but had a very friendly vibe and was an interesting place to visit.

Somewhat shabby area inhabited by middle to old age hippies and other dropouts smoking and trying to sell pot. As the rest of Copenhagen is functional and moving forward one wonders whether all cities should have their own Christiania district for the druggies and dropouts...More

The freetownship where the free spiritminded find their refuge is a nice, different visit DAYTIME, with concerts on Sundays during the summer.

This is an experience. This is a Freetown separate from the EU so pot is legal here and sold in kiosks. Beautiful old Danish buildings with graffiti. Many artist studios peppered through (I don't think you can visit) The people that live here had to...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
