Alternative Christiania

Ready for something different? Then head out to freetown Christiania in the district of Christianshavn. The freetown Christiania was founded in 1971 by a group of hippies who developed their own set of rules, completely independent of the Danish government. Even though the government has succeed to some extend 'to clean up', the area is still very unique. It is a society within a society, but open to the public – even with guided tours. Christiania is a mixture of creatively built houses, workshops, galleries, music venues, cheap eateries and beautiful nature. For your own safety, visitors are advised not to photograph in Christiania, especially not in the area in and around Pusher Street. At the entrance you will find signs indicating 'do's and don'ts' in the area. We advice you to follow them for your own safety.
