Pusher Street, Copenhagen

1.0
#40 of 90 in Sightseeing in Copenhagen
Landmark Tourist Spot
Pusher Street is part of the self-proclaimed autonomous neighborhood Christiania, well-known for the progressive and liberated Danish lifestyle--including sales of cannabis on open stands. Residents took over former military barracks and parts of the city ramparts in 1971 to create a laid-back, hippie-style commune. Follow the signs that will tell you the rules of Christiania, which forbid stealing, violence, guns, knives, hard drugs, and biker gang colors. This green-light district also features bars with live music, vegetarian restaurants, and interesting graffiti art. Do not take pictures on the street.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.

  • Just lots of men openly selling marijuana and other men standing around, clearly affected by drugs. For me it felt a bit hostile. Maybe the rest of Christiania is nicer, I can't really say. I just ate...  more »
  • Look, there is really only one reason to go here, if you want to buy some weed, hang out and smoke it, this is your place to go. Pay no mind to the articles saying pusher street was closed down, it wa...  more »
  • If you're anti-marijuana, don't go. It's as simple as that. You don't have to partake, but I would advise not going if drug culture makes you squeamish. The people were friendly, street art was cool, ...  more »
