Freetown Christiania is one of the more unusual neighborhoods in Copenhagen, with a history that is unique to say the least. Founded as a commune by a group of homeless Copenhagers in the early 1970s, it has continually clashed with the government for non-payment of taxes, and for the sale of marijuana, which is the area's main trade. There are two rules in Christiania: don't run (or the residents will think there is a police raid) and don't take pictures of the drug stalls. The aptly-named Pusherstreet is lined with vendors selling pre-rolled joints, hash, and smoking paraphenalia, but guests should also remember that hash itself is still illegal in Denmark.

The Union

The Union is a speakeasy, meaning you may have to spend a little time on the street searching for it, but once you find the unmarked black door with the gold doorbell, you'll know you're in the right place....
