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.

Close to where we stayed, with some restaurants and cafes to choose. We ate at Nyhavns 17 and it was worth. Good place for some pics and move on to other parts of the city,

Love this area, so amazing. Beautiful houses with a canal in the middle very similar to Amsterdam. You have very nice canals cruises wich I recommend because you can see the city in other perspective.

A really nice area on the canal with lot's of cafe's and bars. Some of the old boats look great. But although expensive it not too much different to the rest of Copenhagen.

Many bars but we did not want to go into many of them we rather chose to sit outside. Houses and bars are colourful and many tourists on the walk. We quickly found a bar with outside seating and enjoyed the rest of the evening.

Just like other people said, nice to see - take a picture or two - move on. We were here this week, but at the moment it is rainy, cloudy and cold. I can imagine this place has a better atmosphere when it's sunny and to have a stroll over there. But for us it was just a quick stop,... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
