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.

Best shrimps sandwiches can be found along these sidewalks. Also fun to take the boat cruise to see the city from the ocean.

This is a very picturesque place and on a sunny day the multicoloured houses look lovely! There are many restaurants down the street if you fancy a spot of lunch or dinner, though the prices are not cheap. It can be very busy too. If...More

Lovely place to visit whilst in Copenhagen. We visited in March when everything was frozen! You can easily walk to Christiana across the pedestrian bridge from the Nyhaven area. All the outdoor restaurants were busy even in the cold! Nyhaven is a must when visiting...More

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

It could be either. It’s nice to just walk around. There is some history to talk through but again wouldn’t take too long.
