Address: Prinsessegade, Christianshavn, Copenhagen, Denmark

- Free


Copenhagen's independent city within a city.

A 1960s hippy experiment in communal alternative living, the "independent" freestate of Christiania was until recently a byword for soft drugs and sleaze. Now that the dealers have been cleared away it's a rather lovely, sleepy, undeveloped enclave of the city, yet one that is very central - it's just a short bike or bus ride from the heart of the city centre. The fun in exploring it is just wandering around admiring the waterside homes and taking it easy in the chilled out cafés and bars.
