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

We had a wonderful traditional Danish lunch. It was a great way to start out our vacation. Wear comfortable shoes as it is an all cobblestone walk way. Very picturesque.
