Just a quarter of a bike ride from the inner city lies the freetown of Christiania.
If you are planning a trip to Christiania, it is a good idea to spend a whole day. There are many sights you can see village-like houses, most often built by Christiania’s local residents.
Here you can experience the colorful shops, buy organic food at reasonable prices, go to the high-end restaurant at Spiseloppen and experience a sea of cultural events.
The core values of Christiania are freedom, community and creativity, which is clearly reflected when strolling around in the colorful sanctuary.
at Christiania, buying cannabis products is not legal. If you are in possession of cannabis and are being searched by the police, you risk at least a fine of DKK 2000
The sanctuary has a very relaxed attitude to cannabis and pot smoking, but a very strict and clear line to hard drugs.
Christiania was originally a part of an abandoned miletary barracks, which on 26 September 1971 was taken over by the so-called slum storms, which consisted of artists, hippies, homeless people, abusers and everything else good from the human sea.
Although cannabis sales are obvious at Christiania, buying cannabis products is not legal. If you are in possession of cannabis and are being searched by the police, you risk at least a fine of DKK 2000
