The freetown Christiania was created when a bunch of hippies squatted in a military area in the heart of Copenhagen in 1971, and the hippie commune and self-declared autonomous region is still going strong—about 850 people live in the beautiful brownstone buildings and self-built houses of the freetown. While the center of Christiania, close to the main entrance, is a hustling, bustling area with alternative bars, vegetarian restaurants, souvenir shops, camera-clad tourists, and (illegal) hash dealers, the area closer to the lake still contains the chilled-out and creative charm on which Christiania was built. Cross the bridge and walk north along the trail running next to the water, and admire the unlikely houses, the friendly greetings from locals, and the quietness in the middle of the city.
