ToursSightseeing ToursTheme ToursCulture & HistoryOff the beaten trackAlternative ToursOutdoor Activities

Get off the usual tourist trail and take a 1.5-hour private guided walk through the alternative Christianshavn neighborhood of Copenhagen. Learn more about the Freetown of Christiania, where the old and new exist in harmony to create a free-spirited vibe.

Highlights

  • Venture off the beaten track and explore the alternative communities of Christianshavn
  • See the colorful houses of Nyhavn and the Church of Our Saviour
  • Travel back in time and listen to some great stories about Freetown Christiana

Description

Explore the free-spirited neighbourhood of Christianshavn and learn more about the lifestyles of the different communities and how the area came about. Cross the bridge from Nyhavn to see a newly built residential complex. Then, turn a corner to discover the typical narrow houses of Christianshavn. Venture off the beaten track and hear how the area developed from a former military site, with the aim of becoming a self-governing society. Discover an acclaimed restaurant with 2 Michelin stars and the site where the women’s prison used to be. Hear why the area became known as 'free-spirited Copenhagen' for its progressive values, including a relaxed attitude to cannabis and its popularity with activists, hippies and the gay rights movement. End on the doorstep of Christiana at the most free-spirited place of them all. Note, the tour does not take place in or enter the area of Christiania, as guides are not allowed to do tours inside the area.
