You can’t visit Copenhagen and not go to Nyhavn. Probably the most Instagrammed spot of the city and a top sight in Copenhagen. The colorful houses at the waterfront make you happy instantly. Most of the houses are restaurants, so on sunny days it’s great to have a drink there. Although I also recommend The Bridge Street Kitchen food court for food and drinks on sunny days, which is just a 2 minute walk from Nyhavn.
The colorful orange houses of Nyboder will look great on your Instagram profile! I was a bit afraid to only find one orange house when I went there, but there are actually several rows of these orange houses. With the green windows and red shutters they’re very photogenic.
My orange rental bike goes great with it, don’t you think? You can rent these bikes with the Donkey Republic app, a convenient app with which you can rent bikes from almost every street in Copenhagen for a very reasonable price.
Creative squat-neighborhood Christiania is a great background for pictures with its street-art, creative spots and pieces of art. Please be aware though that in most places in Christiania it’s not allowed to take pictures. As they’ll be selling weed there, which the Copenhagen police doesn’t appreciate that much. This house had a sign that it was allowed to take pictures, so I didn’t second guess and took an Instagrammable picture with the peacock feathers.
It’s a bit further out of the city center, but a great walk and easy to reach on your rental bike: Reffen. It’s located at an industrial part of Copenhagen and also one of my favorite food spots in the city. At Reffen you find sea containers in all kinds of sizes and colors, all selling a different kind of street food. You’ll also find a playground and many picnic tables. It’s great for summer days and to hang out with friends.
The second-oldest still operating theme parks in the world (the oldest one is actually also in Denmark) is located right in the city center of Copenhagen. Admitted, it’s not cheap to go to Tivoli as you first have to pay an entrance fee and then for the rides separately. That being said, you shouldn’t miss Tivoli when you’re in Copenhagen. Even if you don’t go in any of the rides, it’s a very pleasant park to walk around in and there’s a patch of grass that’s great for relaxing.
Without a doubt the most Instagrammable hotel of Copenhagen: Skt Petri. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, but also if you’re not staying at the hotel you can still enjoy its design. This picture is taken in the lobby, and you can also book a table at their restaurant or have a drink at their bar.

Rosenborg Castle is a beautiful renaissance castle in Copenhagen. It was built in 1606 as a summer house, a very big summer house that is. Most castles are always a bit far out of the city, but Rosenborg Castle is located right in the city center.
Frederik’s Church can also be found in the city center of Copenhagen. It’s often called The Marble Church, and you will see why. It’s a wonderful piece of Rococo architecture and especially if you go early morning (before the crowds arrive) you can take a wonderful Instagram picture.
