Nyhavn is a 17th century waterfront,canal and entertainment district in the city centre,stretching from 'Kongens Nytorv'to the harbour front just south of the Play House.
it is lined with brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars,cafe's and restaurants.Serving as a heritage harbour,the canal has many historical wooden ships.
The area is very popular with locals during the summer when they flood the bars and cafe's and sit outside to socialise and drink beer.Even in the winter months the brave one's still sit outside with a beer and a blanket.Nyhavn also serves as a hub for canal boat tours.

Directions: Between Charlottenborg and the harbour
