10 Instagrammable places in Copenhagen

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 photo shoot. We have chosen for you the best spots in Copenhagen to build your portfolio or Instagram.

1. Magstræde

One of the two oldest streets in the city makes for a very mesmerizing setting. The colorful buildings, the bicycles all around and the cozy 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 photo shoot.

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 theater 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.

5. Nyhavn

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 colorful 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 photo shoot 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 photo shoot. 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.

8. Rundetaarn

One of the favorites 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 marvelous 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.

Within a walking distance of 12 minutes from the Tower Bridge, you can visit the glorious Shard. This skyscraper stands tall at 309.7 meters and is the 5th tallest building in Europe.

Houses of Parliament & Big Ben

Probably the most famous area in London for tourists. On a daily basis, thousands of tourists visit Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to get the perfect picture of the iconic buildings. Sadly, Big Ben will not be visible until 2021, as it is under construction. During the night the view of Canary Wharf still is astonishing.

Piccadilly Circus

A beautiful and major traffic section in the heart of London, with a huge video billboard that can be seen from any side. It might be one of the most visited places as well, but if you just be patient you can take some amazing shots.

Leadenhall Market

The stunning architecture of the Leadenhall Market has attracted a lot of film directors, as it makes for an ideal filming location for any type of movie. In fact, the famous Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter movies was located there. All stores close around have opening times from 09:00 until 20:00 from Monday to Friday. Those interested can visit the market when everything is closed for some pretty impressive photographs.

Natural History Museum

Another architectural masterpiece which on the outside is very pretty and spacious, but it is the inside that catches the eye. The Romanesque architecture is considered a work of art on its own. Although it is always crowded, you can still take advantage of the people and take amazing pictures. The best feature of the museum is the upstairs floor that has no exhibitions and it is truly remarkable.

Millennium Bridge

The most photographed bridge in London after Tower Bridge. The views from all sides are astonishing. Photographing St. Paul´s Cathedral while on the bridge can be a great addition to your portfolio. Make the time to also visit at night.
