Serving as a heritage harbour, the canal is packed with old wooden ships.
Nyhavn was constructed by King Christian V from 1670-73, dug by Swedish war prisoners from the Dano-Swedish War 1658–1660, as a gateway from the sea to the old inner city at Kongens Nytorv (King's Square), where ships would unload their cargo and the fishermen their daily catch.

Please note that the Christmas Markets usually start in the last week of November until Christmas Day.
