Christiania's Architecture


Christiania is an open, recreational area filled with experiences. However, many of the visitors to the Freetown see only a fraction of Christiania’s diversity. The media often portraits Christiania as a synonym for Pusher Street, but this lovely green area in the middle of the city contains so much more. On this website we will give you an inside look of the various and playful architecture that Christiania holds. Many of Christiania’s experimental homes are constructed from a variety of reused materials. Buildings range from makeshift huts to elaborate constructions with green roofs. Because the Danish government didn’t want to recognize the community as a legitimate one, there were no zoning restrictions.

As a result, architects from all over Europe have come to Christiania to experiment with new techniques and styles that they might not be able to build elsewhere. Walking through the neighborhoods, one finds futuristic and ecologically sustainable architecture integrated with its natural surroundings. You can find the experimental architecture all over the Freetown, but we especially recommend a trip around the lake. Here you will find a great variety of homebuilt houses – even one with an exterior front built entirely of windows from other old buildings.
