Copenhagen - A lovely city!

I will present 7 European cities to you guys. Copenhagen is the first one.

The first city I visited during my month-long trip in Europe was Copenhagen. I really enjoyed this charming city and the weather was perfect.

Please enjoy!

Thanks.

Yes there´s a metro and commuter trains as well. I never used any public trasportation though as it´s quite easy to get around on foot.

I stayed at my godmother´s place in Nørrebro which I think is one of the most interesting areas in Copenhagen. Went to Christiania as well - what an extraordinary place!

Cheers for all your comments

^Why do you hate it? Such places are what makes cities interesting these days. I would never want to live in a city with only corporate atchitecture and neatly kept lawns.

Its the principle, hippies overrunning military property and the government allowing such behavior to a state where they can live tax free inside a city yet enjoy all the benefits other's work hard to have.. ( and the Christianian's are usually heavyly dependant on government heandouts )

A few years ago they even had a shopping street with drugs sold openly - hence the name "Pusher Street"

Even today in this time and age, people technically occupying military property are given a saying in the municipals planning for the area - that is just crazy if you ask me!


If people want alternative places they should pay for it like everyone else pays to get what they want..

^To be honest I would much rather have a hippie community than a dull militsry base in my city. According to wikipedia the barracks were abandoned so I don´t see what the problem is.

And concidering the fact that the government refuse to allow the locals to revamp the area in order to clear it out when it´s run-down enough I have a hard time taking the gvernment´s side here.

They should pay taxes like everybody else though. How come they don´t?

1 - Do the principles of private property mean anything to you?

2 - Are you simply a socialist?

3 - If a building is unused, who should be entitled to decide its future use - the owner of the building - or anyone else?

4 - They may pay for water, electricity etc., but they don't pay rent for land or buildings. If anyone should be allowed to steal land from the state/community, or use a house free of rent, what kind of taxes would the rest of us have to pay?

5 - What if someone build their own house in YOUR backyard (assuming you own this backyard)?

- Nice photos, anyway

Yeah. They should pay whoever owns the land. But I still don´t understand the hatred towards the place in this thread.

The owner. But instead of destroying Christiania they should sort out this whole ownership row.

As I said I see the problem, but I think it can be sorted. I think it would be a stupid decision to flatten the place and replace it with a boring housing estate.
