Den Nye Havn, 'the New Haven', Copenhagen, was originally a busy 17th century commercial port where ships from all over the world would dock. The area teemed with sailors, ladies of pleasure, pubs and alehouses. 'Den Nye Havn' eventually changed its name to 'Nyhavn' ('Newhaven'), and gradually the beautiful old slanted houses were renovated and classy restaurants started popping up.

Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse, it is lined by brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses and bars, cafes and restaurants. Serving as a "heritage harbour", the canal has many historical wooden ships.
