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, cafés and bars. In the warm summer months the streets are crowded with people enjoying 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!
