The bright colored little townhouses in Nyhavn dating back to the 17th century, decorate the waterfront canal. Thousands of people gather at this tourist magnet. Picturesque wooden, army boats are anchored in the water, and canal boat tours filled with tourists come and go regularly.
For a cheaper and longer option, besides the canal cruises, take the river ferry from start to end.
The buzzing cafes and restaurants at Nyhavn, set both indoors as well as outdoors, are of course tourist oriented with the relevant high charges.
