Seasons greetings to everyone!
Almost a month back i was watching Discovery Travel and Living and they had a special edition of Scandinavia. Upon the anchors travel to Denmark she had visited this place called Christania or christanea im not sure how exactly this is pronounced. And they have a kind of a psychedelic/flea market and festival every year..... morel ikea tribute to psychedelic culture. And upon discovering the place more.... it seems more like an isolated hippy community.

Could someone share more info abt the place?
I would really lik to knw more abt this place.

BOOM!

@FrodOhm, Alex and Kriz. thanks a bunch for the info.
I just saw on tv the other day an it looks reallly beautiful and there was also few interviews with a certain people and they explain they have survived inspite of the govt. resistance. Also they showed an interview with an artist.. who does more of sculptures, paintings etc.... and he takes them to a place... a short jjourney through a forest or a swamp or something of that sorts..... and he has made this amazing out of the world sculpture. It wasnt exactly a sculpture ... it was more like a huge bridge made with logs/woods all placed randomly.... and it took nearly 20 years for this guy to finish this!! And today its one of Christanias premier tourist attractions.

Does anybody kno the name of this guy? Seems like he is pretty famous around there. I recommend everybodyin scandinavia to check out this place. Its really beautiful... and prolly one of the rarest hippy settlement ud find on earth.

Thanks guys!

You are not allowed to run there, the drug dealers get nervous and throw bottles at you.

most be a an old program

the hippie culture is long gone and has been taken over by drugdealers,bikers and teenagers with their dogs who think they are bad ass

i dont know what festival you are talking about cause the christianitter as we call them have no tolerance for trance music or any kind of electronic music their used to be alot of parties out there but now there is maybe 3-4 parties there a year but no trance

i think its an old storie about this place being all hippie and shit just see how they treated the dunst people (who are fucking fantastic by the way) who actually brougt some life back to the gay house

also remember a party at the rabbit island outthere where a local had cut the robes to the boats because he didten wanted techno music there

the fleamarket hasent been there for a very long time there is maybe 4-5 stands left there

the only festival i can think out is the preformance art festival called "Halfmachine" which is held at den grå hal (the grey hal)

so im sorry to say but the christiania portaited is long gone imo but there is still some very nice buldings,cafes and craft shops there left           www.myspace.com/trollatcrackwhoremodels

Gangsta's Paradise


.. The oldies, Christianitts are hidden inside the town.

Only psy you might catch is full-on blasted out of the Boomblaster owned by the gangstas.

Two weeks ago one of them kicked the face in of another person claiming one of them had stolen from his mom (looked like a fair person). Not alot of hippies there my friend. Sometimes theres nice vibes in reggae,jazz, blues gigs up at Operaen (across the baker).

No denying that the summer time is beautiful time for Nania!!




PS. The food in Loppen (restaurant by the entrance, in the main building) is realy good, very fancy, and also alittle bit expencive, but its super nice and perfect for a more romantic date

Hi guys! Wow... i see a lot of response to this thread .
@Troll... it wasnt an old program.. as the credits at the end of the program dates 2007.

Well im pretty sure they wldnt want to show the ""other side"" of Christania bcoz tht really wldnt portray a good image.. so they stick to just from a tourists point of view.. and i found the place extremely beautiful.

Regarding the hippy community, well... they dint quite a show lot of people... but as i said.. just interviewed a couple.

Now with regards to a festival. Now when someone says a festival... it necessarily does not mean it shld involve music... does it? . And it dint look likea huge one but nonetheless a smaller one.

And yes it is kind of disheartening to see it has been invaded by Gangsters et al. But nevertheless it looks like a gorgeous place to visit.

Thanks for all the info though guys!

@UrbanPsySpirit

"Now with regards to a festival. Now when someone says a festival... it necessarily does not mean it shld involve music... does it? "

A festival is just a social gathering of festivities focussed around a certain topic or theme. So no.

"And yes it is kind of disheartening to see it has been invaded by Gangsters et al. But nevertheless it looks like a gorgeous place to visit. "

People should definately go see it, and perhaps even learn the history of the place. There is a lot to learn, especially about how utopia can easily turn against you.

There are more beautiful places in Denmark, take my word on it.
