The area
Address
Neighborhood: Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well 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 venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

It is quite a quiet area which means if you like photography you'll enjoy wandering around with your camera. The yellow stand out buildings with high pitched roofs and ochre shuttered windows all lend to the charm. There are lots of bicycles and one or two old cars which give an extra to photographs. The only drawback are the parked cars that often line most of the streets.

On our way to see the Little Mermaid, we found ourselves wandering through the former naval barracks of the city entirely by chance but we were very glad to have done so.

Pretty red cottages laid out on either side of a wide street were charming to walk through and it was a little like stepping back in time. Planned and built by Christian IV as accommodation for the families of the Danish Navy, these buildings are a real treat to see and if you follow them round, you'll come across a very touching war memorial with an eternal flame.

There are no gift-shops and no cafes and you're unlikely to find the hordes of tourists that will be camped out at Nyhavn, Tivoli or the Little Mermaid but for me, that's part of the appeal...this is a little spot well worth a visit.

We stumbled upon this area almost by accident, which would be a shame to miss. The historic area was planned by the famous king Christian IV who wanted to build a row of naval barracks to accommodate the families of the Royal Navy personnel. It is a row of yellow houses (although its original color was red and white) which is the reason why locals often refers to this color as “Nyboder yellow”.

The Nyboder Houses were commissioned by King Christian IV to house the nation's seafaring men and their families and, from the start, was a privileged area with a private hospital, private schools, and a police force of its own. However, all male residents were obliged to perform military duty for a period of up to 20 years. This is a delightful, and colorful, area to explore.

The Nyboder is an interesting historic area and is well worth an hour of your time to visit and take photographs. It has plenty of character with its mustard/yellow coloured houses, cobbled streets and disused air raid shelters. It was originally a barracks and it looks like a lot of the area has been renovated over the past few years and turned into resident housing. It’s nice to see that they have kept the character of the area during the renovation with the traditional wall colouring, window designs and front doors. There are a number of large notices up around the site explaining the history and renovation.

A hidden gem with an enthusiastic knowledgeable volunteer guide who spoke excellent English and gave us a private conducted tour. Worth going to see the little cottage, plus specialforces exhibit. Sadly printed info in Danish but a small problem. Hopefully they will get UNESCO world heritage site rating.

These Nyboder Houses were built to house the navy's sailors and their families. Currently being rejuvenated as student quarters well worth a visit .

A lovely photogenic area to stroll in. Built in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries as naval barracks but now open to civilians to purchase. All the houses are painted with a very distinctive ochre colour.

As the Royal Danish Navy rapidly grew under King Christian IV there was a need for increased housing for the navy personnel and their families. The initial construction of these rows of single storey houses, with cobble stoned streets in between, commenced in 1631 and finished in 1641. The rows of houses were initially red and white but are now "Nyboder yellow".

There was a further expansion in the second half of the 18th century with the building of several rows of 2 storey houses and the conversion of some of the original single storey into 2 storey houses.

Today both military personnel and civilians live in these rows of houses.

When we visited a number of the rows of these houses were being renovated.

There is a statue of Christian IV nearby.

Interesting site but not a must see.
