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.

Nyhavn was interesting though a bit touristy - even for May! The little Mermaid was exactly that....little! Very disappointed- felt I’d been misled by the abundance of advertising!

This is very touristy, hundreds of people walking, drinking and eating at the cafes and restaurants. It's a fun but very loud place. This was where you took the sight seeing boat rides.

This is absolutely a must do in Kopenhagen ! If with family or as a romantic Walk with your spouse, if in Kopenhagen this is a very nice walk, with nice restaurants and view :)

Way too many people and over priced food along this historic road. Yes the houses are pretty, but no worth the crowds. Take your pictures and go.

Great place to sit, relax and take in the beauty. Try the restaurant Herring and the ice cream place just past the bridge.

Everyone told us to go here. We did. Wowza. So gorgeous and great area to walk, tour and just chill. Restaurants are decent, but the views are world class.

Came here during sunset and it made for a perfect evening. Walking up and down the harbor, eating dinner, and getting dessert was a great time. This is a must do when you come to Copenhagen!

This is a definite place to visit when in Copenhagen. It has lots to take in. This is a canal location with bars, restaurants, shops and plenty of people from all over the world to watch. The buildings are colorful and there are several musicians...More

Visited Nyhavn in May 2018 and it was a great experience. The street is always busy night and day and on the weekends. It has great restaurants and places to visit. Near the Metro. Great place to visit and spend few hours.

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

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.

We stayed at the Hotel Kong Arthur and it was great! Inexpensive, clean, close to a few attractions and in 20 minute walking or biking distance to everything and right on the river. Are there things closer to Tivoli, yes... More

Three days is more than enough. I went for 3 days thinking it would be too little, but as we walked down the streets the first day, we already saw most sights and for the next 2 days we enjoyed other things 😊
