This is a lovely spot with the historic colorful buildings right on the water and all the pretty boats. Don't miss the canal boat tour, it's the best way to take in the sights of the city!

Ok so we visited on a Saturday afternoon in mid-October; Yes, it was sunny and warm and all colourful that day, but we just tripped along on our way to the harbour bus. Would like to have been there when there were fewer people so...More

If you have seen pictures of Copenhagen or a post card more than likely this was it. Very picturesque but a tourist trap nonetheless, don't eat at the restaurants that line the canal. I do suggest taking a canal cruise, it was a nice way...More

Nyhavn is the hub for anytime action to experience local culture and great dining selections. It is a full day for quality sightseeing from local shops, dining, canal tours, bike riding, and most of all people watching!

Nyhavn is a great place for a view, people watching, and food. The restaurants range from Michelin star to your Danish hotdog. You can pick up boat tours here. Safe area. Definitely a must!

The standard photo of Copenhagen is a must for all visitors, the pier is lined by restaurants with tables outside, most offering blankets to ward off the chill. Worth a visit, take the photo.

Loved the brightly coloured houses on the waterfront....and it's a must see. But it was very busy on the Saturday we were there and so we walked round and left. Loads of bars and restaurants and free public toilets.
