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...more

What a cool little spot to go for a walk on a sunny Copenhagen day! The pictures do do the location justice. We really didn't do anything here other than have a look around while enjoying a coffee. Beautiful part of the city

Terrific section of Copenhagen amidst multiple cafes with open air sections near one of the canels. Beautiful and chic, it is popular spot for Danes. We stayed at a great hotel right on Nyhavn street, 71 Nyhavn.

Beautiful place to walk through, stunning colours, very photogenic. But watch out for the overpriced tourist restaurants, carry on into town for more wallet friendly bars. The Hans Christian Andersen gift shop is worth a peek, reasonably priced too

One of my favourite places to visit in the city. Everybody who visits should come here. Boat tours are a great way to see it. Some fantastic places to eat along the street too!

The Dining in 71 Nyhavn is excellent. The staff is fun and helpful. The food is varied and well-prepared. The setting is both indoors with views and on the pier of Nyhavn -- the best place in Copenhagen for people and boat watching.

This should not be missed. We finished a walking tour of Copenhagen here by the old harbour (strangely named the New Harbour!) and althought the food was expensive, it was good honest seafood at its best - and none of this nouveau cuisine small portions...More

consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
