With just three hours of darkness during Denmark’s summer nights, the pre-dusk twilight known to photographers as “the golden hour” finds itself morphed from an elusive 60 minutes at the end of the day to a luxurious window that lasts much, much, longer during the summer months. In winter, when the role of night and day becomes switched and when the days shrink to a mere seven hours most of which is more aptly described as a brighter than normal twilight than a true “day”, the Danish landscape is similarly conducive to incredible lighting and gorgeous photography. Add in cities like Copenhagen with its modern Danish architecture blended seamlessly with historic paved cobblestone streets, multi-colored building facades, century old wooden sailing ships, canals, and wealth of vibrantly colored gardens and you have a city which is an incredible living tapestry. All of which doesn’t even begin to encompass the high fashion, incredibly fit and attractive population, and mouth wateringly delicious foodie landscape.
So, to help you discover and explore Denmark and the talented Instagrammers based here I’ve assembled this list of 18 (now 19) of my favorite Denmark based Instagrammers. In addition to these 18, I also suggest you follow me at @VirtualWayfarer, as well as two of my favorite official tourism accounts: @VisitCopenhagen and @GoVisitDenmark (in total DK has 60+ regional accounts to check out). While most of the folks on this list are based around Copenhagen, these Instagrammers also highlight destinations all over Denmark and the world at large. I’ve numbered them to help you keep track, but people on the list are included in no-particular order or ranking.
