PHOTOGRAPHY / Copenhagen Photo Diary

See more of my trip to Copenhagen by clicking on the read more button. 

Hi guys! I took over 500 photographs in Copenhagen last week. And even though not all of those are worthy of sharing, it was still hard to make a selection for the blog haha. The city itself is just so photogenetic, with all its colorful streets and little towers everywhere. Anyways, besides sharing some of my favorite shots, I also wanted to share some of my experiences. Maybe it can help you when you're visiting Copenhagen yourself one day!

1. Rent a bike. You've probably heard this many times before, but renting a bike is definitely one of the best ways to explore a city. It's faster than walking, but you still see so much more than when you would use public transport! The thing about Copenhagen is that it's a great city for cycling. The streets are not chaotic and there are bicycle lanes everywhere. Regarding to that, the city reminded me a lot of the Netherlands!

2. Visit Christiania & Paper Island. Both these locations are in Christianshavn, in the East of Copenhagen. Christiania, alsno known as Freetown Christiania is a self-proclaimed, autonomous neighborhood. It's like no other place in Copenhagen and it kind of reminded me of Berlin. Probably because of all the graffiti haha! Within a walking (and bike) distance of Christiania you'll find Paper Island or Street Food Island. This is the place to get some lunch. You can get anything here, from vegan falafel to steak and everything in between!

3. Visit museums. Copenhagen is packed with gorgeous museums, and even though you might not be interested in art or anything, a couple of them are still worth the visit because of the gorgeous architecture. Besides that, lots of museums have free entrance on, for example, every Wednesday. We visited the National Gallery (Statens Museum for Kunst) which has free entrance every day of the week haha. We also visited Louisiana, which is an amazing museum just outside of Copenhagen.

4. Go to Norrebro. Norrebro is a district of Copenhagen where you will find lots of cute coffee and lunch places. Besides that there are many hip shops and galleries. And what I liked most about this neighborhood is that you can escape the tourists here. I guess this would be the place where the locals go!

And that's it for now. If you're visiting Copenhagen and want to know more about some things I've done, you can can always contact me! 


  1. Wat een prachtige foto's heb je gemaakt! Ik ben zelf een paar week geleden ook naar kopenhagen geweest, wat een prachtige stad!

  2. Christiania vond ik ook zo tof! Dat lijkt echt een apart dorpje. Ik ben toen ik een dag in Kopenhagen was niet eens bij die haven met gekleurde huisjes geweest, da's wel jammer! Als ik er nog eens ben ga ik deze tips zeker gebruiken (een fiets huren in een nieuwe stad is altijd een goed idee)! Erg mooie foto's trouwens. X

  3. Wat een mooie foto's! Ben er nog nooit geweest!

  4. Gorgeous photos! I really want to see Copenhagen one day xx

  5. Ik droom helemaal weg bij je foto's! Wil hier heel snel een keer naartoe!
