A Christiania Tour is your guarantee to have a running experience like no other. Christiania is as big “must” as The Little Mermaid and Nyhavn. Christiania Freetown is mostly known for its open cannabis trade but Christiania is much more than this – it is self governance, it is art, it is ecology, it is tolerance and most of all it is unique!

This Christiania running tour will also take you through the quaint part of Copenhagen called Christianshavn with its cobbled streets, old houses and beautiful canal. Christianshavn is jam packed with history and it is in the area that you can view some of the oldest houses in Copenhagen as the city fires never crossed the harbour.
Once in Christiania you will experience the non-touristy side of Christiania as your guide will take you on a run along the backside of the freetown. Here runners will see how the people of Christiania truly lives, which is something that is difficult to experience if only entering the centre of the freetown. We will get a close up view of the many self-built houses, the female blacksmith, the organic eatery and of course walk through Pusher street. No Christiania running tour without having a close look at the drugs.
Christiania is also the home of the world famous cargo bike conviniently called “Christiania Bike”. If the workshop is open we will pop our head inside, and if not, you will simply have to get a good look through the window.
All through the Christiania tour your guide will explain the history and self-governance of Christiania and give you the latest update on the governments efforts in cleaning up the place. The tour finishes off with a beautiful run along the berms surrounding Christianshavn.
It is tour that again and again receives praise from our guests and the most common words are “WAUW – we would have never found this on our own”. You can read customer reviews and the reasons behind why we guide the Christiania Tour here.
