The lime building is ready. It's an Ice cream cafe. I found it wrote the word "ice cream" in Danish to give it more of a Danish feel, also it is much more convenient to make. I might add some kind of ice cone in the free space next to the word "is" later.

Last building will be red. Any ideas on the content for the building?

Enjoy!

Ok i am going to be such a girl and say the lime building is so adorable.  :sweet:

Like the pink accent line. Really makes it seem like an icecream shop. Thanks for explaining the danish for ice cream... as an english speaker the big "is" on the building still makes me giggle, but is not perplexing now anyway  :wink:

Red building? boat rental/rides office, travel agent, seafood restaurant, harbor museum - not sure what would be appropriate for denmark

Very nice  :thumbup:

I love the ice-cream shop. The color choices are really splendid.

I love it. I can't wait to see your whole layout in its final shot.  :classic:

Last building is ready. It's a pizzeria. It's a combination of two existing Lego pizzeria's. I wanted to stay to the real theme of Nyhavn, a lot of restaurants and bars. Next I will add some life and interior to the harbour.

Enjoy!

Its looking really good, I can't wait to see the interior! Are you going to build a couple of sailing boats to go in the harbour? I think they would capture the feel Nyhavn and just make the water a little less "empty".

Nice town! My favourite building is the pizzeria. IMO the colours "flow" best on that one. I also like the orange club,

I hope to add some bigger boats than the rowing boats. I don't have much experience with building vehicles, especially boats. But I will try my best. I did try to put the Caribbean clipper in the harbour, but as impressive as it looked, it also blocked most of the view of the buildings. An alternative for the emptiness is to reduce the width of the water by 16 studs. That way I would also gain 16 studs of building space elsewhere in the city.

:wub: This really gives you the feel of being in Nyhavn. The little red benches, the colorful buildings, and the little row boats.

Keep Bricking.

Thanks for all the nice comments and advices.

I decided to take a break on the harbour to build something else. I always wanted a hospital in my city, but everytime I started one, it just ended up looking like sh*t.
Now I finally managed to finish one that I am happy with. Except for the waiting room It hasn't got an interior yet.

Enjoy!

Yes Deen, the design of this is awesome. Once again, I love the use of the older style of windows.
