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.

Lovely and very picturesque, but can be very crowded during the height of the tourist season. Still a must see when in Copenhagen!

Hard to pick just one place in this wonderful city, and while it is very touristy, it is also very typical of Copenhagen. Go!

This is a fabulous area and is always busy. River on one side and street lined with restaurants. We had drinks in 2 different places, expensive. Beware of places that don't have prices on menu, your pocket will suffer !

Nyhavn sits on a lovely canal. Bars and restaurants line the street. The buildings are pretty pastels. It is really nice place to walk around and people watch. My wife and I returned in the evening for dessert and drinks. It is worth a visit!

We very much enjoyed our walk through the Nyhavn district during our visit to Copenhagen in June 2018. Its colorful buildings are the backdrop for many restaurants and boutiques and also a docking area for canal tour boats.

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
