Freetown Christania

CITY WALK -2 HOURS - 4 KM

Christiania is a former military base that was abandoned for many years before becoming the neighbourhood we know today. In 1971, a group of hippies broke down the barricades and began squatting there. Nowadays, approximately 900 people live in the area, comprising a community that has its own rules and regulations completely independent of the Danish government. During its relatively short history, Freetown Christiania has faced a certain amount of turmoil. This is mainly due to the cannabis trade taking place in its famous “Green Light District.”

Guided tours of Christiania are not pre-scripted. The guided tour are led by a Christianit and will give an authentic and personal insight into Christiania's structure and history. Everyone is given a short factual historic summary, but after that guests receive an individual version of the Christiania story based upon the guides own experience. It makes each tour a unique event. The tour normally begin with half an hour introduction, followed by a walking tour around the area. Tours can vary in sequence and sometimes the introduction is given during the tour.
