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.

Lots of restaurants on this street but really amazing view. The view is worth walking up and down and sitting on any restaurant you find to just enjoy it. Really colourful and relaxing part of the city. Its crowded during happy hour as people get off work and go there

A typical tourist place but so lovely. Prices of the bars are reasonable. A different kind of restaurants as well.

Very colorful and pleasant to walk around. Cute little stalls selling all sorts of things from food to clothing to jewelery. Cafes and bars with outdoor seating. Perfect little place to stop for a drink or bite to eat. Take one of the numerous canal tours and enjoy the scenery but watch out for the low bridges!

An absolutely wonderful place to hang out and people watch. Take the Netto canal boat tour while you're there.

Beautiful part of Copenhagen and probably the most colourful. It's lovely to spend the day here as there are lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Great place for photographs too!

Nyhavn is a quite turistic place but still a nice place to sit and have a beer or a light lunch. There is often live jazz and a must visit when in Copenhagen :)

We had been in the Design Museum and were on our way to the Christiansborg Slot and came across this so called must see places.

stopped here on the hop on/off bus for lunch. It had been raining and was a little wet but it was very scenic and along the canal were many restaurants to choose from.

One of the best maritime walks is Copenhagen harbour and port . To stop and have a beer or a meal in Nyhavn . It is beautiful and if it is not overcrowded with visits you can feel and smell the life of sailors .
