Description

Take some time away from the common downtown attractions on this walking tour in 2 of Copenhagen's most distinctive districts. Linked by a history of diverse, countercultural communities, Freetown Christiania and Vesterbro let you experience the quirky side of the city.

Your guide leads you across the water onto the island of Amager to visit Christiania, a set of old ramparts and military barracks that were taken over during the hippie movement in the 1970s to form its own self-governing society. Learn about the vibrant identity that its residents have forged for themselves as you get a look at the vivid public art and communal lifestyle on display all around you.

When you visit the former red-light district of Vesterbro, your guide lets you in on the history that led the working-class district to include a thriving community of young artists and entrepreneurs. Get a sense of story in a distinctly Danish way, and make sure to get some advice on a few more unique spots to visit before you part ways with your guide.
