Maritime setting at Nyhavn

Above the bar swims the mermaid or more likely sways quietly, while pirate stories are shared and the vinyl plays old acquaintances..

The Mermaid is a maritime gem and has faced changes troughout different ownerships and there too renovations. The dark building is newly polished but hides historical features and real sailor details.

Since 1937, the house has invited guests from near and far for food, and today is a charming bistro serving everything good from the sea.
