Denmark Off The Beaten Path: 88 reviews and 113 photos

 
 

Fristaden Christiania / Freestate of Christiania started as a Hippy-colony on an empty island opposite of the cruise-port of Kopenhagen. In 1971 the empty island was occupied by some hippies and they defended their status untill 1986, when their status was officially recognized by the city of Kopenhagen. They follow their own rules of "freedom" also using drugs etc. but on the other hand this freedom does not go so far, that you are allowed to take any pics...
