Beautiful spot with vibrant buildings, and lots of entertainers and passerby. Not a cheap spot to eat/drink. We stopped for a drink. 3 beers and a glass of wine was $65 Canadian ($50usd) with nothing else. Still worth it to sit and stare after a...More

This is a great spot. Lots of action and many cafes and places to eat. Very colorful spot and very photogenic. The cruise is an hour long. Some with covers- some not. Your choice. A must-do!

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

To include canal trip and hop on, hop off bus and have a meal probably deserves a full day
