Off the Grid: Freetown Christiania

In the summer of 1971, squatters in Copenhagen moved in on the abandoned military base, forming the autonomous freetown of Christiania. The hippie anarchic enclave is infamous for its controversial tolerance for hash and marijuana. On a short stretch called Pusher Street, you can find stalls and booths where cannabis-derived products are openly sold. Mainly due to the hash dealing on this street, photography and running is strictly prohibited.
Besides its notoriety, Christiania is a delightful place to explore. The place is brimming with many pleasant bars and cafes, colorful homes, cool murals, eclectic artworks and an atmosphere that you cannot experience anywhere else. It’s really amazing that a place like this exists within the clean crisp confines of Copenhagen.
