Know More about this tour

Outside of the centre and away from the mainstream attractions youll find a very different Copenhagen: across the water to the East lies the self-declared Free State of Christiania, and just south of the central train station the uber-hip district of Vesterbro.

This 2.5-hour tour is a story of two distinct neighbourhoods, one known for its green-light district, the other for its red-light district, each with a fascinating history bound together by their vibrant diversity and uncompromising counter-culture.

Despite international fame, both places retain an edgy sense of freedom, creativity, and grittiness you wont find in the downtown core. On this tour, well take you through Vesterbro, once the historic working-class district, and now an eclectic mix of young artists and entrepreneurs, sex workers and drug addicts.

From there, well make our way down to Christiana. As tour groups arent permitted in the Free State, well give you a detailed overview of what makes this area significant, before leaving you to explore it for yourself at the end of the tour.

This tour is an amazing tale of Copenhagens underground scene, and the people who make it incredible. This is more than just a story of hipsters and down-and-outs; this is a tale of a totally different world questioning the social, political and cultural status quo.

This tour includes the following destinations:

- The story behind The Free State of Christiania
- The uber-hip district of Vesterbro
- The meat-packing district (Kdbyen)
- The Red-Light District
- The Green-Light District
- Mikkeller gypsy brewer
- Det skarpe Hjrne, Copenhagens hard drug nerve
- Mariakirken
- Mndenes hjem, homeless shelter
- The New Theatre (Det ny teater)
- Eliaskirken
- Absalonsgade museum street
- The Royal shooting range

And much, much more!
