Overview

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.

Colorful buildings, restaurants and cafes abound. Can sit at a cafe and people watch or go down by the water and just look out at the boats.

Visited a couple of years ago, but then it was rammed with visitors, this time I got there early and was able to stroll around and take in the colourful buildings and atmosphere. Not to be missed.

Along the canal Nyhavn is colorful and beautiful but beware it is very touristy. Lots of restaurants line the quai.

It was a nice walk from Tivoli Gardens to this area. Enjoyed Copenhagen and had an amazing time everywhere I went. I wish we would had had more time. Not the small city most talk about. Great food as well.

What an area of excitement- the action is great. The lovely old colorful buildings and the canals make for a wonderful combo. A great restaurant/bar scene as well- a must visit while in the city.

Nyhaven is very beautiful and worth visiting when you are in Copenhagen. There are many spots where you can take nice pictures. However, the prices for the drinks and ice cream there is expensive.

Nyhavn is as colorful and scenic as you likely expected having seen pictures of it. But on a nice weather day it was extremely crowded which took away some of the enjoyment of being there. It is worth going there to see it first hand...More

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

It could be either. It’s nice to just walk around. There is some history to talk through but again wouldn’t take too long.
