Hello fellow Globetrotters!
In this post we want to take you to Nyhavn, one of the most famous sights in Copenhagen.
From 1670 to 1673, Swedish prisoners dug this canal. It was constructed by King Christian the V., who did a lot in Copenhagen.
If you are interested in other famous sighs: The little mermaid
It stretches from Kongens Nytorv to an harbour front near the Royal Playhouse. The most eyecatching thing about Nyhavn are probably the colourful houses, which we will show you in a later post.
Nyhavn during the day is lovely to visit, but at night respectively in the evening it is even better. All the lights, the bars and just the atmosphere are a great experience.
If you want to know more, than feel free to visit the website of Nyhavn http://www.nyhavn.com.
Also have a look at: The Marble Church
Even famous people, like Hans Christian Andersen, lived in Nyhavn. He lived in house nr. 20, twenty years in house nr. 67 and two years in house nr. 18.
The oldest house in Nyhavn is house nr. 9 which was built in 1681 and hasn´t changed since then.

You can enjoy some food in a restaurant, a beer in a bar or waffles or ice cream. We had some waffles on a stick (I do not know the name, if it had a special name) and ice cream and both was delicious!
As Denmark is expensive, at least for students from Germany – maybe other currency has better conditions – it was not that cheap, but definitely worth it.
See you soon at our next destination!
