beautiful place I like it
It is perfectly fine to grab a drink and sit by the side of the canal as you soak in this neighbourhood clean-up success story! Look out for the red house where author Hans Christien Anderson used to live! Possibly one of the most instagrammable places because the colours make the scenery so photogenic all year round!
Nyhavn (Danish pronunciation: [ˈnyhɑʊ̯n]) is a 17th century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen, Denmark. Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse, it is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants. Serving as a "heritage harbour", the canal has many historical wooden ships.
When you see a postcard of Copenhagen, there's probably a good chance the houses and buildings of Nyhavn are shown. It's seriously picture perfect. My canal boat tour drove us by and the colors were beautiful. Tons of people walking the area. They say Hans Christian Anderson lived in Nyhavn. It's a hugely populated by tourists, but it's still nice to see.
You can´t say you´ve been in Copenhagen with out visiting Nyhavn ;) I love this wonderful small houses in old fashion colours. The big author H.C. Andersen lived in one/two of this houses. I use to take a soft ice-cream in one of the basement stores. A great place to enjoy life and relax!
An absolutely beautiful area... We wandered over looking for the "House of Amber" and ended up wandering around just admiring everything in the area. Bring a camera, and even better.... plan to have some beers at some of the cafes and bars. It's a great area to check out!
