The 5 best reasons to visit freetown christiania in Copenhagen

1) The natural beauty

Most people who have heard of Christiania know it as a hippie commune created back in the early 1970s. Many people know it as the centre of Copenhagen’s counterculture community as well as a place where hashish, though technically illegal, is traded and consumed openly. But what a lot of people are not aware of is how lovely the area’s nature is, especially the lake, the canal, and the surrounding woods.
