Outside 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 über-hip district of Vesterbro. This 2.5-hour tour is a story of two distinct neighborhoods, 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. Discover how Copenhagen’s historic working-class district has evolved into a thriving community of young artists and entrepreneurs living and loving the quirky vibe of the red-light district, lined with sex workers and drug addicts. Learn about the successes and challenges of the Danish welfare system that takes care of them. Hear the story of how the hippies took over a military base in the 70s. Walk down the notorious Pusher Street of the green-light district, just around the corner from some of the city’s most expensive real-estate. Beyond the hipsters and gelato stands, there’s an amazing tale to tell about Copenhagen’s underground scene and the people who have made it, and continue to make it, great. 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. *Average tour length.
