The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Copenhagen

Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most picturesque cities, without a doubt.  Its rustic fishing ports, modern graffiti and winding red brick streets are made for putting on the ‘gram.

Visiting Copenhagen anytime soon? Here’s our top 7 Instagrammable spots in Copehanhagen…

1. Copenhagen – Nyhavn

The most quintessential Copenhagen snaps can be shot here at this colourful old port.

Check out Hans Christian Andersen’s dwelling at No. 20 and the oldest Nyhavn building at No. 9, dating back to 1681. So pretty that you won’t even have to add a filter.

4. The Black Market in Nørrebro

Superkilen is a cool urban open space in Nørrebro with three different coloured squares (The Red Square, The Black Market and The Green Park.)

For Insta the Black Market is by far the best – those sharp white lines look slick.
