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

We stayed in this area and it lived up to its reputation as a lively and interesting place. Always something going on with all the boats and a great place to enjoy a Carlsburg.

Yes you will see boats and old homes the colors of crayons along with many tourist. It is crowded even in late September. If you have not been to another Nordic city then it is best to visit but as I have been to Bergen, Oslo and Stockholm the novelty is no longer there. Want to buy an ocean proven... More

We had heard that as part of our trip to Copenhagen we needed to visit here. We were glad we did, What a beautiful place. The buildings look great in all the different colours and on a glorious day it would be lovely sitting round having a drink watching the world go by.We didn't have time on this visit.

Nyhavn is part of the Copenhagen's inner city; close to the shopping street, Strøget, queen's house, even close to the Opera House and Little Mermaid! This is the part I have seen it represented in most of the postcards about Copenhagen! The view is very nice; with buildings with nordic design "dressed" in many different colours! Among them there is... More

You won't find a travel ad of Copenhagen that does not feature at least one photo of nyhavn. This famous waterfront embodies the brilliance and energy of Copenhagen. With its brilliantly colored buildings and raucous eateries, it is a great place to relax, grab a bite to eat, and watch people.

It was a nice eating area, and there was entertainment even at lunch time. The food was varied, they have blankets over the chairs which you can use when it gets cold, and there are also electric heaters under the brollies.

A lovely walk along the canal with lovely boats, colorful buildings makes for great photographs. Stop for a local drink or international foods for lunch/dinner and shop in the souvenir and jewelry shops. A must see area in Copenhagen.
