If you’re looking for a restaurant or a nice bar to hang out – take a look at the new harbour of København. The Nyhavn was finished in 1673 and already by that time a lot of taverns for the sailors lined up there. Today the tattoo studios and the dark sides with prostitution, burglary and bar fights are gone. If you get there you can see a lot of colourful small houses along the water, enjoy some old ships placed there and take a look at the beautiful illumination in the evening.

The area is today a pedestrian zone where you can sit outside and enjoy life. It is also the starting point for touristic canal cruises. Don’t omit a visit to number 23 where the famous Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen lived and wrote the tale The Princess and the Pea (‘Prinsessen paa Ærten‘).
