The theme park in the center of Copenhagen is more than just a place to get high-speed thrills. There’s an enchanting atmosphere to this attraction, which has been open since the 1840s. Wander around at night, as the lights of the park glimmer and the strains of live music drift through the air.
An ex-military base in the very heart of Copenhagen, Christiania was taken over in the 1960s and transformed into an independent colony of free thinkers and peaceful anarchists.
