Nyhavn Canal in Copenhagen



Nyhavn is the Danish word for "new port"



It's a canal that was built in the 7th century in the capital of Denmark Copenhagen.

Originally a meeting place for seafaring crews, the art world, and other entertainers, it is now a bustling fashionable district where 17th century colored houses stand alongside countless Scandinavian canteens and pubs where you can enjoy the famous Danish beer.

Enjoy the scenery by taking a boat trip on the canals. Easily visited on foot or on two wheels thanks to a reliable cycle network.The typical postcard image of Copenhagen is that of the colorful houses on the banks of the Nyhavn Canal in the heart of the city.

Before becoming the lively and trendy district of today, Nyhavn, which means "new port" in Danish, was for a long time the meeting place of sailors, artists, and writers.

Hans Christian Andersen used to live here and you can see his house.
