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...more

My partner lives in a little side-street just off-Nyhavn, so I've seen rather a lot of it in the last two years. Very pretty, if usually rather overcrowded - personally I prefer it at nights. It's much less crowded, and the lights make for a...More

It looks quite nice, but it is a relatively small area, so you don't need that long to see all of it. It's worth a short visit but it is overcrowded, so not that idyllic. And there is no chance to make a picture without...More

Nice street along the canal. Boat tours go to the bottom and you can jump on with a hop on and off bus and boat ticket. Lots of shops further in. Extremely busy.

No visit to Copenhagen would be complete without a visit to this colourful and vibrant area. There are several cafes and a canal tour can be taken from this iconic location.

Nyhavn, would now be concidered an old harbour. It is quite touristic, but anyway, it is nice to go there and have a drink and take some pictures. It is easy to integrate this spot in a walking tour, especcially if you want to see...More
