A town within a city, a rebel neighborhood within a well-ordered society. This is Christiania (Freetown), Denmark, a small community smack dab in the middle of Copenhagen, Denmark. Within this community are tiny houses, built by hand and with whatever materials are within reach.




Christiania began in 1971 as an occupation of disused army barracks in the southern portion of Copenhagen near a lake. The 900 or so freethinking individuals who inhabit the area are a self governing community who refuse to pay taxes to the Danish government, run their own businesses and schools, live without cars on unpaved roads, build their own houses, restaurants and civil buildings and even have their own currency.

Until 2004, one of the main attractions in Christiania was a series of hash stands on the main thoroughfare, which was named Pusher Street. While hard drugs have always been banned by community law, the hash trade was a burgeoning business for Christiania until the Danish government finally cracked down and the town was forced to refocus its business ventures. Visitors now come to Christiania for inexpensive, ethnic food, music concerts, coffee shops, yoga studios, farmers’ markets and handmade gift stalls. However, there is still a drug element in parts of the town.

Yes, I would live there I would be a stress free life I would imagine!

I would not live there. Their living conditions are not that great, but their houses do have a certain charm to them and I'm sure the atmosphere there is great (at least it felt like it). Only visited once. I guess once was enough lol.

For the record: they actually do pay taxes. It's a common misunderstanding that they don't.

If my degree had any sort of merit in what is seemily a technologically defunk area it could perhaps be a fun place to live.

Some of them seem up to code. I possibly would.

I've been there and it certainly is a charming place, it has a very cozy atmosphere and the drugs aren't really a problem. If you don't want anything to do with drugs then you don't have to, Christiania is much more than just that, however I would not want to live there, I understand why people who do live there enjoys it but I think I've gotten too used to living in the city to make a sudden life-style change (doubt you'll find many people who enjoys anime in Christiania).
