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. Plan your Christiania visit and explore what else you can see and do in Copenhagen using our Copenhagen online travel route planner.

  • It’s an interesting place and I would definitely pay a visit if you are in Copenhagen. But if you do go there definitely take cash with you if you want to buy anything there because there is no card payment. I found the people to be very nice and friendly and did not encounter any unwelcome behavior. Me and my friend walked around the whole Christiania and felt completely safe and comfortable within that environment.
  • On a weekend in Copenhagen, we had to go to Christiania. Main place is cool with activity and animation but streets are more full of dealers than authentic people. I would still recommend to go there just to see if you have time.
