    Hi, we have our tickets to Wacken (will be flying from Canada) and were planning on staying in Copenhagen following the show for a week or so. Does anybody know of any cheap hotels in or near the city center? Also, to anybody who has been or lives there, how is the nightlife, and are the things I hear about Christiana true?

    On Sunday after Wacken you can go to the Wacken-party in Headbangers Ballroom (Hamburg) and staying there the whole night without paying any hotel. I did it last year and I'll probably do it again :)

    That's all I can say, I'm not from Hamburg. :)

    I walked into christiana and at the first corner I came to I saw a few little stands selling brownies but when I got closer it was actually massive chunks of hash. Yup! It's a pretty cool little place! You can buy a pre rolled spliff or whatever and just hangout. I would recommend bringing your own munchies though because the snack bar grub is NASTY.
    I stayed in a decent hotel with a dorm in the town center but I can't remember the name. If I think of it I'll let you know.

    it's in central Copenhagen. It's about 2 square blocks that I think was an abandoned military post or something that has been declared a "free state" by squatters and the cops don't bother with it at all. It's beautiful :D

    Its more than 2 blocks. 2 blocks is just the touristy area.

    The full story is that after the Danish army vacated this place (about 5 minute walk from downtown Copenhagen), the government debated what to do with the place.

    Then the hippies came. THey established a "Free state of Christiania" and have lived there despite many attempts by the Danish government to remove them. In 1971, they cut off all water to Chrisiania for a year, but hippies don't shower so they never noticed.

    Today there is much debate whether the site should remain, mainly because they pay no taxes, while the rest of Denmark has one of the highest tax burdens in the world.


    If you're there, walk around the quiet areas of Christiania, its much nier than the crappy touristy parts.

    I've heard about this place before, and all I can say is that this place is a whole lot cooler than Zendik Farm.
