Welcome! Ready for a different experience? Then follow me to Freetown Christiania (Danish: Fristaden Christiania). This part of Copenhagen is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (84 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn.
A town within a city, a rebel neighbourhood within a well-ordered society. Within this community are tiny houses, built by hand and with whatever materials are within reach. This results in wild, freeform, colorful and charming architecture.

The freethinking individuals who inhabit the area are a self governing community who refuse to pay taxes to the Danish government, run their own businesses and schools, live without cars on unpaved roads, build their own houses, restaurants, theatres and civil buildings and even have their own currency.

Jester was fabulous and took us around Freeland Christiania, which encouraged us to explore and learn much more than we have otherwise. He's very knowledgeable, funny and kind and we enjoyed our time with him immensely. It ended at the most amazing food truck court and we had a spectacular dinner. Definitely recommend signing up for a tour with Jesper to get a sense of the city and it's wonderful people. - Amy

Jesper was absolutely fantastic. He was very patient and flexible - we were late arriving to our meeting point - he was great. The tour itself was informative and fun - Jesper even helped me with a video that i was doing for my website. It was a great afternoon and i would highly recommend Jesper and Vayable in general. Many thanks Jesper! Margaret
