Christianhavn, situated on an artificial island between the inner city and the island of Amager, is a bohemian lover's dream! From the cool cafes and trendy restaurants to old school bodegas and 19th century waterfront houses, there is plenty to see and do. Cross over the newly built bridge from Nyhavn and observe the mix of people as well as the varied architecture.
On this tour you will discover this city's origins as a merchant town and why the residents consider themselves Christianhavners first and Copenhageners second.
While here, head to the entrance of Christiania, a self-governed autonomous neighborhood. Also known as Freetown Christiania, this unique enclave began as a squatters camp at a former military base and they now have their own flag and the motto You Cannot Kill Us. This automobile-free area boasts a myriad of diverse buildings, unique shops and a thriving alternative cultural scene. On Pusher Street you can observe the open cannabis trade in action despite periodic crack downs by the police.
Conclude your tour while still outside the entrance to Christiania where you can stay and mingle or go wherever you desire. The choice is up to you!
