Full description
Explore the free-spirited neighbourhood of Christianshavn and learn more about the lifestyles of the different communities and how the area came about.

Cross the bridge from Nyhavn to see a newly built residential complex. Then, turn a corner to discover the typical narrow houses of Christianshavn. Venture off the beaten track and hear how the area developed from a former military site, with the aim of becoming a self-governing society.

Discover an acclaimed restaurant with 2 Michelin stars and the site where the women’s prison used to be. Hear why the area became known as "free-spirited Copenhagen" for its progressive values, including a relaxed attitude to cannabis and its popularity with activists, hippies and the gay rights movement.

End on the doorstep of Christiana at the most free-spirited place of them all. Note, the tour does not take place in or enter the area of Christiania, as guides are not allowed to do tours inside the area.
