Tour of Freetown Christiania
There are many different 'truths' about the independent state Christiania. On a guided tour led by a 'born' christianit, you get a real insight into Christiania's structure and history and at the same time hear the guide's own 'truth' about Christiania. The Tour Group is, like Christiania itself, a group of different people who have lived most of their lives in Christiania, and have taken part in both the political, cultural and social life of Christiania. Guided tours of Christiania are not pre-scripted, where everyone has the same experience. Everyone is given a short factual historic summary, but after that guests receive an individual account of the Christiania story based upon the guide's own experience, which makes each tour a unique event.
At the end of the tour you will enjoy drinks and snacks at Café Nemoland.
Duration 1-1½ hrs excl. drinks and snacks
Starts at 14:00 at Christiania's main entrance
Pick up by bus at 13:30 by by at CPH Hotel
