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.

Great places to eat and excellent servicel All tastes catered for. boats going up and down all the time. A shop selling the most delicious ice-cream was packed out but worth the wait! There were musicians playing as well.

This area looks just like the photos! While it is very crowded on the weekends, it is a wonderful place to enjoy a cafe on the canal. Copenhagen is pristine!

Nyhavn is a lovely place to walk in. Very cute with colourful constructions and the canal. There are also excellent places to take an icecream as you walk around!

Just gorgeous. This really is one of the prettiest streets in the world, I think. Take a camera (not just a smartphone), and plan to spend some time getting just the right angle for just the right photo to share with your friends, and make them wish they had been with you.

This is a very picturesque spot, reminiscent of Tobermoray with its brightly coloured harbourside buildings. Yes the prices are a little high (not as bad as London) but you have to pay a price for location. In Venice you pay a fortune for coffee in St Mark's Square and a fraction from a Coop two streets away -but then you... More

Stopped along the front here and had 2 large cokes in the bar which cost £10, average for most City squares and on par with London, Was nice to sit here for a while and watch the world go by in the sunshine but probably not worth the expense.

The setting is amazing - and lots of people appreciate this. Sometimes hard to find a table if you're a bigger group in the many restaurants - so it's recommended to book a table. For most of the places the food is ok - but over prized. That is out weighed by the people spotting - the house Hans Christian... More

Quite interesting place. I was expecting it to be more artistic but it's not really, although there are some galleries. It mores looks like a community of weed lovers. Still pretty cool to see such a place of free will in a very downtown area of a capital. Despite of what some people are saying, we felt very safe and... More
