Copenhagen's Nyhaven, or "New Harbor," is actually steeped in a long heritage. 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.

Nyhavn is a beautiful area, with the colorful building and sailboats lining the canal. It's busy throughout the day, but is remains stunning regardless. Of all the meals we had in 3 days throughout Copenhagen, the 2 in Nyhavn were the worst. The food here is mediocre compared to the dining found throughout the city. Excellent to visit and say...

This is a charming cobblestone canal-front section of town with a lot of restaurants and cafes. It is acceptable to drink in public, and many people buy beer to go and sit on the edge of the canal.

Definitely worth it to see, but extremely expensive to eat in this area. Take a few pics, have a latte, move on.

This is an exciting place...lots of people, hustle and bustle. Looks like a nice place to have a meal with lots of alfresco dining. The buildings are unique and beautify with their different colours. The atmosphere is great...we had a good time visiting. An icon of Copenhagen...

This is an area by the harbor with many restaurants and bars. It is great on a sunny or non-rainy day. It is a place that is great for people watching.

The is very colourful and lively, good to get some bay tours starting from it. The cafes and restaurants were quite above my budget. Walking distance to the main palaces and to the Little Mermaid.

Talk about stunning !!! The energy is amazing , cafés with out door tables line the channel and the boats and houses along it are so very lovely. Go late afternoon stroll along the water and get some great photographs and then stay for dinner. This place is magical

Lovely walking round these old buildings, great cafe/restaurants or purchase your own beverages and take down to the strip and sit by the canal and watch the world go by. Hans Christian Anderson was born here so it's a great peace of history.
