In the middle of Copenhagen, at the end of the big shopping street Strøget, lies Nyhavn. The beautiful, colorful, old buildings in Nyhavn are often seen on photos and postcards from Copenhagen.
The buildings dating back to 17th and 18th centuries were used as warehouses and civil homes. Nyhavn was built as a supplement to the old harbor and got the name The new Harbor (Nyhavn in Danish). It was a very popular harbor for traders and craftsmen that came with their ships from around the world.
The houses in Nyhavn are still residences and in many of them you'll find bars, cafes and restaurants. Nyhavn is also known as the place where the famous Danish author Hans Christian Andersen lived.
