Copenhagen is one of those cities that does not take long to explore and is full of places and little corners that are perfect for any photographer or Instagrammer. If we simply said that the whole of Copenhagen is Instaggrammable, then this post would be cut short right here.
A beautiful city with great modern architecture and many unique things to see and taste. Usually, it is not one of those cities that would be full of tourists daily, so it makes perfect for a casual photoshoot. We have chosen for you the best spots in Copenhagen to build your portfolio or Instagram.
One of the two oldest streets in the city makes for a very mesmerizing setting. The colourful buildings, the bicycles all around and the cosy cafes make the street even more perfect.
Very convenient is the fact that is not a central street, so no matter when you go, you will not find many people around, which allows you to take your time in your photoshoot.
2. Marble Church
Frederiksgade street connects Marble Church, the most impressive church in Copenhagen with the Amalienborg Palace. In these two places and in the street between, you can produce some inspiring pictures.
Just avoid going after 11.30 in the morning, since crowds start gathering at the Amalienborg Palace for the guard’s change.
3. Palads Teatret
An old theatre that might look like nothing at first. However, the pastel pink walls make for a great background. Just use your creativity and you can end up with a pretty amazing result.
4. Botanical Garden
A historical glasshouse surrounded by a botanical garden, palm house, and a butterfly house. The cast iron spiral-stair leads to a passageway on top and is the reason why most people visit the garden.
The staircase can be found in the Palm House with a fee of 8 euros from 08.30 until 18.00. From October to March, the closing time is 16.00.
One of the most iconic places in Copenhagen. Definitely a spot to be for photographers. The beautiful canal can inspire from any point of view, whether you see the canal from the middle or have the colourful buildings behind you.
Around Nyhavn, there are some beautifully decorated cafes, that are also great options for Instagram pictures. Just try to avoid the classic poses that everyone has on Instagram.
6. Rosenborg Castle
Royal art treasures and rare gems can be found in the Castle’s gallery. But the outside area is why most people go for. The King’s Garden is free to enter and its surroundings are remarkable.
There are many separate areas that will allow you to set the mood for the photoshoot you want, whether is with a background of the castle or the forest trees.
7. Copenhagen Bispebjerg Cemetery
I know it may sound morbid, but it is not. Around the cemetery, there are some pathways that are remarkably pretty and perfect for a spring photoshoot. During spring the cherry blossoms bloom and ´ explode in an awe-inspiring pink flower sky´.
Keep in mind that it still remains a place of respect and grieve, so try to be discreet and respectful towards other visitors.
One of the favourites and most crowded places in Copenhagen. The Round Tower is a feast for Instagrammers since there are many hidden places to explore. The tower itself is very big and broad, so no matter how many people are inside, you still have empty spots to take your photos.
Get until the very top and on your way check the Floating glass floor that is 25 meters above the ground, a library with wooden decorations, the observatory and the window before going up the observatory.
9. NY Carlsberg Glyptotek
You have so many reasons to visit the Carlsberg Glyptotek; the art is marvellous and the surroundings of the museum even more astonishing. French masterpieces, Egyptian and Greek sculptures are a few of the arts you do not want to miss.
The Glyptotek itself looks like a tropical luxury museum, with perfect corners for an incredible shot. It would be better if you visited in the morning when the visitors are not so many.
10. The Black Diamond Library
As a part of the Royal Danish Library, the Black Diamond is open to the public. The formation of the building is quite unique with large windows with a view of the sea and sky. Go around and check all the floors until you find the perfect spot for your Instagram photo.
