Welcome to Christiana

The area was settled by German farmers during the 18th and 19th centuries, which is a little bit evident in the complexion of some locals and the local Moravian church, located at the northern end of sinuous Main St. During the 19th century, Christiana became a hill-town resort popular with European dignitaries and Kingstonians escaping the heat of the plains.

Around Christiana you’d be forgiven for imagining yourself in the Pyrenees or the Costa Rican highlands. The air is crisp, clouds drift through the vales and pine trees add to the alpine setting. There's some good hiking to be done here, and the change of pace from Jamaica's tourist centers can be refreshing.

Copenhagen Alternative City Tour

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: SANDEMANs NEW Europe - Copenhagen, Copenhagen, ZealandOutside of the centre and away from the mainstream attractions you’ll find a very different Copenhagen: across the water to the East lies the self-declared Free State of Christiania, and just south of the central train station the uber-hip district of Vesterbro.This 2.5-hour tour is a story of two distinct neighbourhoods, one known for its green-light district, the other for its red-light district, each with a fascinating history bound together by their vibrant diversity and uncompromising counter-culture.Despite international fame, both places retain an edgy sense of freedom, creativity, and grittiness you won’t find in the downtown core. On this tour, we’ll take you through Vesterbro, once the historic working-class district, and now an eclectic mix of young artists and entrepreneurs, sex workers and drug addicts.From there, we’ll make our way down to Christiana. As tour groups aren’t permitted in the Free State, we’ll give you a detailed overview of what makes this area significant, before leaving you to explore it for yourself at the end of the tour.This tour is an amazing tale of Copenhagen’s underground scene, and the people who make it incredible. This is more than just a story of hipsters and down-and-outs; this is a tale of a totally different world questioning the social, political and cultural status quo.Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
