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

This is the most amazing place all year round. Great food and local markets. But at Christmas time it becomes magical. Don’t even think about it. Just go.

Really lovely place. The Christmas Markets looked so beautiful, when lit up at night it was quite the spectacle. One thing I would say, bring plenty of money along with you, almost everywhere in Denmark take card. A lot of places are even card only.

Well worth a walk down here, especially when the Christmas markets are on. Near to the hippy commune as well.

Nyhavn is probably one of the most recognizable spots in Copenhagen, and it was not a disappointment. Even though the weather wasn't great while I was there it was still beautiful to see the harbor and surrounding buildings. Also when I went (early December) there...More
