The Most Instagrammable Spots in Copenhagen

Copenhagen – easily one of my favourite cities in Europe. Danish culture, the unique culinary scene, and the colourful streets draw me right in.

On Saturday, we took the train over to spend the day in Copenhagen [the whole journey is about 45 minutes door-to-door from our apartment in Malmö]. The sun was shining and it was 12 degrees Celsius [in mid-February], which made it the perfect day to roam. 28,000 steps later, with pitstops for patio drinks and food, we were able to cover so much of the city. And snap a lot of pictures.

Are you planning a visit to Copenhagen? Wondering where the most photogenic spots are?

Here’s my list of the most Instagrammable spots in Copenhagen.

1. Nyhavn

I’m going to start with the most obvious: Nyhavn. This is the canal that you’re bound to see in almost every picture of Copenhagen – and for good reason. Nyhavn is beautiful.

2. Magstræde

This narrow alleyway is one of the two oldest streets in Copenhagen and features the most beautiful colourful houses and cobblestone street.

3. Superkilen Park

Superkilen is a skatepark in the Nørrebro neighbourhood of Copenhagen. It features some very interesting artwork to get that perfect Instagram picture.

4. Christianshavn

If cute and aesthetically pleasing doorways are your thing, you can find these scattered around the neighbourhood of Christianshavn.

5. Tivoli Gardens

Want to feel like a kid again? Tivoli is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world and continues to maintain its old-world charm. I went at Christmastime, hence the holiday decorations. However, Tivoli is beautiful all times of the year.

6. Freetown Christiana

Whether or not you’re looking to take pictures, Christiana is worth a visit just from a bucketlist perspective. But why not snap a few pictures while roaming this unique community? I can guarantee that you’ve never seen a place quite like this one before.
