Nyhavn (New Port) - was established by King Christian V in 1670-73 - as a gateway from the sea to the old inner city - and at that time the canal area reached right up to Kongens Nytorv (Kings Square) - where the ships unloaded their cargo - and the fishermen their daily catch. The trade and shipping activities around Nyhavn provide a strong growth of Copenhagen - and the many houses surrounding the Nyhavn canal along the two historical quays are nearly 350 years old.

In the beginning of the 1700s - and on the shady side of Nyhavn - great mansions like Charlottenborg and other lavish houses with flats for the wealthy citizens were built. On the sunny side the houses were built of wood - brick and plaster - and were the most colourful and picturesque houses at Nyhavn rented by poor and common residents.

The famous fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen lived in no. 20 - from 1834-38, where he wrote is first stories. Later he also lived on the opposite, sunny side of Nyhavn in no. 67 - from 1845-64. The last years of his life he lived in no.18.
