Nyhavn, which means 'New Harbour', is probably the most photographed area in Copenhagen due to the idyllic setting of the old, multicoloured buildings and the canal boats.

Construction of Nyhavn began in 1670 and was completed in 1673. The harbour was dug out by Swedish prisoners of war.

Formerly the red light district of Copenhagen, Nyhavn has been transformed into a bustling tourist area where people can go for trips on the canal boats, visit one of the many restaurants or simply relax and soak up the atmosphere beside the harbour.
