    Our Colourful Copenhagen Route takes you to some of the most interesting places in this vibrant and exciting city. With your 72-hour ticket, you’ll have plenty of time to explore its various stops and experience some of Copenhagen’s most fascinating destinations.

    Surely, the most famous stop on our hop-on hop-off route is Christiania Freetown, which is a commune which was started fifty years ago when a former military barracks and parts of the old city ramparts were squatted by local anarchists and hippies. Christiana certainly has a “colourful” reputation- cannabis has always been sold there freely – but it’s now become one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions and, for many, it represents the relaxed Danish way of life. So, make sure you hop off and explore its characterful streets and alternative shops and bars.

    Very different from the hippie vibe of Christiania is the Copenhagen Opera House, known as Operaen or The Opera. This incredible neo-futurist building is one of the most expensive opera houses ever built and, in our opinion, one of the most spectacular too. It’s well worth hopping off the bus to check it out and also to enjoy the views over the water to Copenhagen’s historic centre and Amalienborg, home to four royal palaces.

    Our Colourful Route is certainly varied. Hop off at Reffen for a totally different atmosphere. This lively open-air waterside food market is home to more than forty different stalls and bars where you’re guaranteed to find something delicious to eat. It’s a great place to head at lunchtime!

    For another change of scene make Christianshavn your next stop. This lively bohemian neighbourhood was first established in the 17th century and built in the style of a Dutch merchant town. Today, it’s home to canal-side shops and cafés and delightful renovated warehouses. It’s a brilliant place to take a stroll. And make sure you don’t miss the Church of Our Saviour with its amazing corkscrew spire. Once you start exploring our Colourful Route, you’ll definitely understand how it got its name!
