Colorful buildings line the canal and hint at a history of small-vessel traffic. Like many ports, this strip has a salty history, rich with sailors, drinking and literary exploits. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen made his home in Nyhavn as well. It's cleaned up now and is a lovely place for a stroll. « less

If you are in Copenhagen for a short period of time - head to Nyhavn for a stroll on this beautiful canal in the centre of Copenhagen flanked by touristy restaurants but a good place to hang out for a while

We took a canal boat cruise here by Netto-Bådene The cheapest cruise operator at Nyhavn , only 40 kr per person, the boat ride last about 1 hour. We enjoyed the boat ride. If you are on a very tight budget and could not afford this 40 kr canal cruise, you could try the harbour bus #991, #992, #993 ,... More

This canal area was a fun place to walk and see some beautiful boats. The dining is expensive here so we opted for a hot dog from one of the few carts. You can take a canal tour out of here or just wander around

We love Nyhavn. Plenty of good restaurants. Also, it is scenic and you can pick up a harbor cruise from there. We liked the Heering Restaurant/Bistro. Also,

We went here twice on our visit, once for drinks and another time for lunch. Really cool pubs and restaurants, you can't go wrong with any of them.

Famous port with beautiful coloured houses. Pretty, not very bit, well worth visiting. Full of bars/cafes, some lovely architecture. Quite busy, touristy. Bit seedy upon closer inspection - strip bars etc. Still worth a visit.. We took the canal city trip from here.

This is THE most photographed spot in Copenhagen and is beautiful in person. Must make a visit but know that the only thing to do is walk through and eat or drink at one of the many restaurants.

Fantastic place to send the end of the afternoon and have dinner. Plenty of bars and restarants, cozy places by the canals with a great variety of local and international food. During the day you can also take a boat trip from there (which I have not experienced but certainly will as it might be one of the best ways... More

Lovely bars and restaurants and even if it is cold and wet sit under the umbrellas and heaters, cover your legs with the blankets they provide and enjoy the views and buskers.
