About the fairytale and our restaurant
The Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen published “The Tinderbox” in 1835 and it is one of the most famous fairytales written while Hans Christian Andersen lived here in Nyhavn.
Hans Christian Andersen was very fascinated by Nyhavn, where he lived for several laps. Hans Christian Andersen found as many other contemporary artists inspired by the sailor neighbourhood’s lively atmosphere where wave unseen from the big world created an exciting diversity.
Here at the Restaurant Fyrtøjet (The Tinder Box), we have been inspired by the fairytale atmosphere of Hans Christian Andersen, which we – in his spirit – have given a modern Danish twist.
