Christiania, Copenhagen

(1.8/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
Breathe in some fresh air at Christiania, a car-free neighborhood of free-spirited Copenhagen. Home to about 800 permanent residents, this district covers approximately 35 hectares (84 acres) and functions as a self-governing community. Famous for its relaxed atmosphere and brightly colored houses, the area attracts nonconformists from around the world with its collective workshops and communal living. Venture farther away from the neighborhood's famous main street to discover a world of green gardens, beer halls, music venues, and gift shops. Although you cannot drive into the neighborhood itself, you can leave your car just outside it and join a guided walking tour at the main entrance. Using our custom trip planner, Copenhagen attractions like Christiania can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • I was advised not to go and visit that little neighborhood but being in town out of curiosity I wanted to go. What a disappointment! A foul smell of ... shocking, environment for anything nice and rude people! You will not miss anything

  • This parallel community is an absolute must see! Make sure to take a walk around the lake and check out all sorts of great houses. 
  • Although I had read several rather negative reviews I decided to visit the neighborhood. As a single traveller I visited the place in the afternoon (because I read that in my case would be discouraged a visit during the night). Personally I found it very interesting and quiet Christiania (I wouldn't call it a "dangerous place" like many do) is a city in itself that I don't think it's possible to visit anywhere else. Many people define it dirty or disreputable. I personally find it only "feature". If not how is it would not be the same thing. The locals are particular but very friendly and visible structures along the way are really unique (all very artistic). Of course, consult their rules of life that are clearly displayed!
