Discover the city's rich heritage by strolling along Nyhavn, a picturesque canal lined by brightly colored townhouses, cafes, restaurants, and bars. Built in the 17th century, this New Harbor (as its name roughly translates), long attracted mostly rambunctious sailors and Bohemian writers. Hans Christian Andersen, who spent most of his life in this district, resided in houses numbered 18, 20, and 67 at various times. Today, the canal area attracts mostly tourists who come here from around the world in search of traditionally prepared herring dishes and the city's famous foaming beers. Don a pair of comfortable shoes, and start your tour at house number 9, the area's oldest building, constructed in 1681. You can plan Copenhagen trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
This place is beautiful and colorful. Just amazing for pictures. Usually, there are many tourists so the best time to visit is in the morning or also in the evening. more »
Really beautiful place with lots of restaurants. We were here during the day qnd in the evening and can recommend both. In my opinion a must see, when visiting Copenhagen! more »
Very pretty. Colorful houses, many cafés, shops and restaurant. All of these are hugely overpriced, of course.
Awesome place. Would love to go back to this city.
