Located on the 17th-century waterfront, this canal and entertainment district stretches from Kongens Nytorv to the Royal Playhouse harbourfront.

Nyhavn was founded in the 1600s as a passage from the ocean to the inner city and to control the trade that Copenhagen was experiencing at this time.

The canalside features a variety of restaurants, cafes, and bars, with dancing and music during the day and evenings.

Today, Nyhavn is a tourist magnet of brightly coloured townhouses and boats, and an ideal place to sit and watch the world go by.
