The New Harbour from 1673 began as a busy trading harbour.
Ships from all over the world anchored here and life in the harbour area was dominated by seamen, public houses, girls and parties. The New Harbour became known as 'Nyhavn' (Newharbour)- one word instead of two. The pretty, crooked, old houses, where in times gone by tradesmen occupied, have been beautifully renovated into cosy indoor and outdoor restaurants.
Business people, tourists and lots of other people can come to Nyhavn to enjoy a wonderful atmosphere, exellent culinary delights, a cold beer and jazz music. Chit chat and laughter fill the harbour with life and captivate the nostalgia.
