Owner description: 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.

Despite it being late April, the place was absolutely packed. We could barely move along the pier. This spoiled the experience a bit and made photoshooting a chore. The place looks lovely with boats and colorful houses but I wouldn't rush back.

A beautiful part of Copenhagen to just drift and wander. A nice range of places to eat and drink. Well worth a visit.

Lovely, buzzy area. Great restaurants and lovely to sit in the sun. Worth a wander and try the herrings on offer at many restaurants.

The Nyhavn is a great place to go. A must see and main attraction of Copenhagen! It is so full of colours here because the houses are painted in different colours. Amazing ! I recommend a canal-boat tour.

this place is "the image" of Copenhagen so is a must view. Is a lovely place to hang out and get the feeling of the city, with the colourful houses, the water and very lively with lots of restaurants and bars.
