Off The Beaten Track – Copenhagen
On our holidays, heading off the beaten track is something most of us would really like to do. We have been too exposed to common tourist destinations, especially the ones in well-known places, that at times, going out to see them can a bit tiring. Depending on the time or season of the year that you visit, some of these well-known tourist spots has the chance to cause you more trouble than they’re actually worth. A lot of these tourist attractions ends up getting fully booked with unrelenting and long queues within minutes on peak times, especially on school breaks. All of the hassle may only end up worth it if you’ve been desperate on going to a specific tourist spot. If you wish to have a more authentic experience of a certain destination that you wish to visit, it may be better for you to choose to go slightly off the beaten track. A great example of this is Copenhagen, one of the most well-known holiday destinations of late.
Christiania – The Freetown
You have struck gold with Freetown Christiania if getting out of regular civilization and seeing how other people live is something you like to do. Not far from the Copenhagen city center, it is an alternative hippy commune which was set up in the 70s by a group of like-minded people. After Christiania and the authorities have come to an agreement in 2011, it has been left alone despite original opposition from the past. The small town is completely car-free, and you will not be allowed to purchase a house there; you’ll have to apply for one, given that you have passed a certain criteria which will be given to you. From live music to brilliant street food and even a local market, there is always a lot of things going on in there.
Nowhere in the whole world could do it better than Vesterbro, as fars as artsy and quirky neighborhoods can go. This area was once known by everyone for being a heavily working class neighborhood, and even famed for its red-light district, located just in the southwest of the city. This time, however, it is known as a hip and trendy place full of independent cafes, easteries and attractions. There are numbers of excellent places that you can stay in, so if you are seeking for hotels in Copenhagen, Denmark, look no further! Walking through the town’s streets and just seeing what you come across with is something you should give time to.
Assistens – The Cemetery
A cemetery may be a place that isn’t a usual destination while you are in a vacation. But you should give this one a chance. Anyone can spend and afternoon whiling away the hours in here as it is well-known for its astonishing beauty. In this cemetery, you will also have the chance to see the final resting places of famous people.
