Number 21 in Europe
This 17th-century district is known for its beauty and joie de vivre. In 2017, named Nyhavn one of the happiest places in the world.

The square, located in central Copenhagen, is number 21 on Holiday Cars’ list, which is topped by the Eiffel Tower.

“This typical Danish landmark is one of the country’s most popular spots. The site has amassed more than 605,000 hashtags, 3.9 million views and close to 5 million Google searches,” said Holiday Cars.

“Nyhavn (New Harbour) was established by King Christian V in the 18th century and quickly became a hub for trade and social activity. Today, thousands of people go here to catch a glimpse next to the rows of old colorful houses and follow in the footsteps of famous writers like Hans Christian Anderson. The oldest house dates back to 1681 and it has hardly changed a bit.”
