Was actually hoping for a better experience. Although I didn't find Christiana Free Town, or Pusher Street, particularly threatening in any way what's-so-ever I did find it more than a bit run down and a little depressing in a way. Maybe because the weather wasn't being kind the day I visited. Although the taking of photos within Pusher Street is... More

If you open yourself for adventures, you should come and see this place. During my visit with my partner, I felt the positive vibration around. All vendors were on mask with sunglasses or shades. I find it cool though and fantastic. I can say that it is a beautiful and unique culture, one and only in planet earth. We just... More

Loved biking through Christiania but I could have missed this street. I'm not a terror-addicted American either but this is just wrong. My opinion. When something is illegal it should be shut down if the police know about it, yet this "street" of drug pushers is not only in the open but they have kiosks set up. If everything was... More

okay, so all of the "to do" lists online for Copenhagen include visiting Freetown, which is where Pusher Street is located. as you've probably read, it's a city within the city. it has it's own rules, it doesn't like the government, it just wants to be left alone to do its thing. oh, yeah, it also gladly accepts the city's...

Did not feel safe in any way, did not like the enviroment, the filth and the stalls. Could have been an ok place to live if certain elements were a bit different

Christiania is a great laugh - whether you're interested in smoking pot or not. These Americans giving the place bad reviews, don't mind them. They want a sterile, Disneyfied version of everything. This place is real, lived-in and vibrant. A gorgeous piece of Copenhagen with some fascinating history, great places to eat and drink, and a fun vibe.

Many rumors about Christiania and Pusher Street. While you may not agree on the entire 70s glamor concept you still need to separate the enclave Christiania with the illegal drug spot of Pusher Street. Christiania has some interesting buildings and you can take guided tours. Pusher Street is where you - as a tourist - will see signs of "no... More

The website makes this place seem interesting but it really isn't. If your dying to smoke then I guess that's a reason to go. The restaurants and everything else looked dirty so although there are supposed to be some decent vegetarian restaurants there we didn't even want to stay. By the looks of the people in the ski masks and... More

I'm a tourist and I wasn't particular bothered about being ripped off I knew my limits and that's the way I played it, sampled their local tobaccos ;) mild but just right. the stand opposite the create your...

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighbourhood Profile
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 area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
