A LOOK AT LIFE IN THE DANISH CAPITAL
Come to Copenhagen she said. You’ve heard it from me before. But maybe you need a little more inspiration. Or maybe you’re coming already. I can’t wait to see some of my Instagram friends from Oregon on a gade in Copenhagen soon! That’s Danish for street.
In an attempt to share some visual love of this fair city, may I present to you the following Instagrammers based here in Copenhagen. This list is by no means comprehensive, but it has been curated. By moi. These are some of my favorites. Each one offers a different peek at what life is like, here in the Danish capital.
Copenhagen street photographer who understands complimentary colors. A gorgeous gallery.
Views from the west side of the city – well-executed street photography brings focus to this colorful Vesterbro neighborhood.
You can see the architect at work in Camila’s moody but intimate gallery.
Kasper catches the often quirky corners of Copenhagen. I had a hard time picking a favorite image – but this one feels iconic to me.
Curated collection that oozes all things Nordic – you’ll wish you were Scandi in a second.
Fine old lady on her boneshaker. King Frederik V on his horse.

Beautifully composed corners of Copenhagen and Odense and elsewhere.
Global Bicycle Explorer
This is a super fun concept account that plays on the fact that more than 50% of people in Copenhagen commute by bicycle. Ride along and see the view of the City from behind these handlebars.
Urban Explorer Copenhagen offers a different take on the city – one that highlights the not so glossy and stylized bits. I find it a great balance and always interesting perspectives. Urban Explorer also offers tours and photo explorations around town, check their website for more information.

When assessed as a whole, Oliver’s feed is at once gritty AND serene. Intimate and evocative. I’m smitten. (With the photos, people. Let’s just be clear.)
I hope browsing through some of these amazing Instagram accounts throws a little more fuel on your fire and you find your way to Copenhagen soon. Still craving more? Make sure to put the City’s official Tourism Agency account as well. Find them here:
