Bond with bohemians at Christiania
Christiania, Copenhagen’s self-proclaimed autonomous neighborhood, is one of the most interesting and definitely one of the most challenging attractions in the city. Founded in 1971 on an abandoned military base by an alternative theater group, it’s now home to higgledy-piggledy workshops and houses, organic eateries, music venues, bars, cafés, and around 1,000 freethinking inhabitants. Push your way through Pusher Street and wander along the winding paths, admiring the funky architecture and lush nature, before taking a seat by the scenic lake. You’ll be sure to spot some curious characters along the way. Special tip: In the spring of 2015, Christiania’s local cinema, Byens Lys, will recommence its popular (and free!) Science & Cocktails evenings.
