Christiania

Christiania

Christiania is part of the Christianshavn district of Copenhagen. The area is named after King Kristian IV and the area previously belonged to the Danish Navy. Christiania has its own flag and Christiania is a society for people with alternative lifestyles. Christiania is a resting place that many consider to be a respite in the big city. In Christiania, drugs are presence and Danish authorities have tried to close Christina without success. Christiania has an atmosphere that doesn’t exist elsewhere. The self-governing town of Christiania has seen its share of ups and downs, but it’s still a place unlike any other in the world. Its 84 acres sit on an abandoned military base, and it was founded in 1971 by squatters and artists as a “social experiment.” It’s full of vibrant scenery, a hippie commune.

Christiania, the famous freetown of Copenhagen, is one of Denmark’s most popular tourist attractions. It is important that you are aware that Christiania is not like any other neighbourhood in Copenhagen. The area can be considered quite rough and dodgy. Locals give guided tours of the area. This is a really good way to experience the special Christiania vibe. The guides have lived most of their lives here, and they give a personal tour of this alternative community.
