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

Nyhavn with its colorful buildings are a photographers dream. Combined with the canal and old sailing ships and boats it is a must see in Copenhagen. A sunny day would be the perfect day to capture the vibrant colours. There are a few outdoor bars...More

Plenty of choice for places to eat and drink. My fiancé and I came here every day on our recent trip and killed a good hour each time people watching and soaking up the atmosphere.

Very nice old-fashion district, worth visits and to go out for dinner. You can take great pictures, in particular at sunset, and enjoy time with friends drinking outside, wheather conditions permitting. In the summer this is one of my favourite place in Copenhagen. Recommended.

A great colourful place to start a day and to end the day. It’s a busy beautiful place surrounded by shops and cafe. Lovely place to sit and soak all the colours and lively ambience.

If you’re going to Copenhagen and have Instagram, you’ll be coming by here at some point. Part of the walking tours, plenty of hip pubs and restaurants if you’re making your own way. Bring a padlock for the bridge across if you’re looking to declare...More
