A bit about the Nyhavn

Nyhavn is a picturesque canal district located in central Copenhagen, Denmark. The area is known for its colorful buildings, restaurants, cafes, and bars, and is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.

The canal itself dates back to the 17th century and was originally a busy commercial port, with ships from all over the world docking in the harbor. Nowadays the area has been transformed into a lively pedestrian district, with the colorful buildings lining the canal home to a variety of shops, restaurants, and bars.

One of the most iconic sights in Nyhavn is the row of historic wooden ships that are moored along the canal. These ships have been converted into bars and restaurants, and are a great place to relax and enjoy a drink or a meal while taking in the picturesque surroundings. Definitely one of the best places to visit once you explore Copenhagen.
