Copenhagen’s Historic Nyhavn

nyhavn copenhagen denmark

Copenhagen‘s historic Nyhavn district is exactly how you’d expect Scandinavia to look like: colorful old buildings with pointy roofs lining both sides of a canal filled with wooden boats. It’s all very calm, cool and quiet. The waterfront neighborhood has remained largely in tact since the 17th Century and provides a perfect peak into Denmark’s past.

The neighborhood may look like a perfect postcard, but it’s much more than a window into history: most of the buildings are still home to lively restaurants, cafΓ©s and bars. In the warm summer months the streets are crowded with people enjoyingΒ cool drinks while street musicians play some tunes. Early evenings can actually get a little wild here. Don’t judge this book by its cover – there’s a lot of life left in Nyhavn!
