Other Great Outdoors
“Starting out as a hippy settlement more than 40 years ago, this unique and controversial area was firstly designated as a social experiment and is now owned by the residents. Christiania is one of Denmark's most loved tourist attractions, and each year, this "freetown" lures up to a million visitors. Admittedly, it may not be to everyone's taste, however, it is a functioning alternative society, a place where many accepted norms simply don't apply, and people live by their own rules. Cars are banned, bicycles are the main mode of transport, and horses roam free. Highlights are the handmade houses and buildings and the large lake where children splash around with each other on hot summer days. The small shops and cafés use a special Christiania currency.”

Music Venue
“This is my favorite music venue in town. It’s located in the Freetown of Christiania in an old military building with lots of charm. Concerts rarely start before 22.00 even if the program says so. It’s very down-to-earth, and your literally face to face with the performing artist. Check out the program pasted up in the streets or on www.loppen.dk”
