Nyhavn (literally New Harbour) is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen. It is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants.
Nyhavn was constructed by King Christian V in the late 17th century and dug by Swedish war prisoners. It was a place where ships handled cargo and fishermens' catch. It was notorious for beer, sailors, and prostitution.
#9 (second from the right) is the oldest house and dates from 1661.
Although beer can be expensive in Copenhagen, you can find a 1L can for 40Kr (about £4.70!!)
Nyhavn serves as a hub of canal tours.
