Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighborhood in Copenhagen, Denmark. Approximately 800 people reside there. If you are in the area I highly recommend visiting. I should say it wasn’t the cleanest place I’ve ever been, but captivating. Please note that in some areas photographs are not allowed and if you try to break the rules, the residents will say something. I was fascinated by all the artwork, including this building.

Her novels have hit Amazon bestseller lists for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance.
She cohosts the Lesbians Who Write Podcast (lesbianswhowrite.com) with Clare Lydon. TB also runs I Heart Lesfic (iheartlesfic.com), a place for authors and fans of lesfic to come together to celebrate lesbian fiction.
We didn’t make it there as we only had about 7-8 hours.
Thanks a shame, Frank. But you have a reason to go back. And there is a tiny bar inside just in case you want to grab a beer.
We enjoyed Copenhagen … and walked a long way as the dock was near the Little Mermaid …. and we walked way across town.
there is much to see there. You probably didn’t have time to visit the brewery. That was fun.
I assume you mean Carlberg. Nope … but on our walking tour, the guide mentioned the family a lot.
They did have a big influence on the city. And the beer is nice 🙂
Love the artistry depicted here…
I’m a huge fan of graffiti. I find the artists really amazing. However, I’m not a fan of those who just tag building or artwork. That’s not art to me but vandalism.
I’ve heard of Christiania, how amazing to visit!
We almost didn’t go, but so glad we did.
Interesting place, TBM! Nice picture!
This is one of the most unique places I’ve been.
Wow–that art is amazing! What a cool place—I have never heard of it. Did you try to take one of those “illegal” pictures and were denied???? Just wondering how you knew where you were allowed to photograph and where you weren’t. I always wonder about protocol if nothing is posted and worry I will offend by taking pictures where it is disrespectful or something.
There are big signs saying “No PHOTOS!” I didn’t attempt to take a photo but did witness someone who tried. Actually, I should share that story.
Yes, you should!!!! 🙂
Will add it to my list of post ideas. Don’t know how long it will take for me to get to it.
Someone was fascinated with breakfast cereal cartoons, Disney, and perhaps acid.
Drugs are available in the area–that’s why you can’t take photos. The residents don’t want evidence.
