Situated in the central Indre By neighborhood, this bustling area once served as Copenhagen's commercial port. Today, the region features a variety of eateries inside its restored homes, some of which were built in the late 1600s. In fact, a few famous artists and writers formerly lived in Nyhavn, including Heinrich Gustav Ferdinand Holm (a painter and engraver best known for his Copenhagen depictions) and Hans Christian Andersen (who penned fairy tales like "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling."
Previous visitors loved grabbing a drink or bite to eat in Nyhavn, although some cautioned that prices here are high. Additionally, several raved about the Copenhagen Jazz Festival, which takes place in Nyhavn every July.
