Nyhavn

Nyhavn is part of the original Copenhagen Harbor all the way back to the founding of Haven, as Copenhagen was then called, in the 12th century.

Starting from the memorial anchor at Kongens Nytorv, the street is lined with many bars and restaurants facing out to a picturesque harbor. In warmer weather people fill every available table in the outdoors seating area in front of every restaurant. And even in cooler weather the heartier types sit outdoors with a beer and a blanket, provided by the restaurant on each seat, over their legs. While not extremely expensive, the restaurants are not cheap.

Less formal seating is on the edge of the harbour with bring-your-own beer. It is not uncommon to see groups of young people sitting along the waterfront with beer, enjoying the sunshine, the crowds and the street entertainment.

It is the starting point for various canal tour excursions, and is located near Kongens Nytorv, at one end of Strøget, and near the royal residence, Amalienborg Palace.

Today, old sailing vessels and the Harbor Canal Tour boats are the only boats observed, contributing to the unique atmosphere in Nyhavn.

When in Nyhavn, the Danes really get into the typical Danish term "Hygge" - we relax and forget all about the worries of our life. Now it's time to have a good time in the company of friends. That's all that matter.
