Owner description: 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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

The place is amazing, of course when the weather allows it. There are many places you can choose to hangout with friends and family. Here you will find people speaks different languages and nearby there is Ice Cream shop.

There are places to eat and drink along the water as well as nice looking boats and periodically leaving canal cruises. The buildings are all very colourful and it's a cool little place

“Place to visit in Copenhagen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Nyhavn is the place to visit if you are going to Copenhagen, the sun is shinning and you are looking for a beer and something to eat. Friendly people, nice old boats and historic places.
