The previous times I’ve been to Copenhagen, I’ve never made it to Christiania. On this visit I thought it had to be on the agenda, and I conquered rain and snow to make it happen. And was it worth it? I guess my opinion of this self-proclaimed autonomous neighborhood swings both ways. I enjoy the artistic expression and the industrial appearance, but on the other hand it looks like the backyard of a hoarder’s place… – I guess “no rules” might have this effect. There are no photo signs scattered around – must admit I didn’t spot them until I was made aware of them. Could be because of the cannabis sale going on, especially on Pusher Street, which was a weird feature in itself – small booths covered in camo nets with a hand sized hole through where transactions are being handled by masked persons. A door to a cafe flung open as I passed and with the thick smoke lingering inside I realized it was not the place for me, as I’d probably go down with just a whiff 🙂
What was suppose to be a nice walk through town, ended up being one long, wet one. If you’re off in bad weather, take the metro, at least it will cut some off the walk.
