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.

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

We were recommended Nyhavn by the hotel staff. Lots to choose from and even live music as you walked along the canal. Ended up eating outside, live music, great food. Had an amazing time.

No trip would be complete without this stop. If you chose a canal cruise be careful prices vary wildly.The boats down the right tend to be less than those at the head of the canal.

Forgot that Danes still smoke inside their pubs s a bit of a throw back to the nineties boozer culture but great experience.

This place is worth going to see for its lovely architecture, tranquil vibe and good food venues. We also caught the boat tour from here. I recommend Cap Horn for lunch too.

Lovely and very colorful part of the city - with special atmosphere. It will be pleasant to go for a walk there or relax in one of small cafes.

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.
