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.

This is a fabulous area and is always busy. River on one side and street lined with restaurants. We had drinks in 2 different places, expensive. Beware of places that don't have prices on menu, your pocket will suffer !

This beautiful stretch of houses on the canals in Copenhagen is something to see. Filled with every restaurant imaginable, the area affords a gastronomes every wish. Worth a stroll through just to observe but it is very hard to resist!

We headed here to pick up a boat tour. Very pretty bustling place with plenty of places to eat. Lots of tourists, but thats to be expected

Nyhavn sits on a lovely canal. Bars and restaurants line the street. The buildings are pretty pastels. It is really nice place to walk around and people watch. My wife and I returned in the evening for dessert and drinks. It is worth a visit!

We very much enjoyed our walk through the Nyhavn district during our visit to Copenhagen in June 2018. Its colorful buildings are the backdrop for many restaurants and boutiques and also a docking area for canal tour boats.
