Copenhagen’s Most Colorful Must-See Streets

Scandinavian countries, particularly Sweden and Denmark, have a long tradition of painting the facades of their houses bright colors. These often change from building to building creating a veritable rainbow of color as one looks down the street. While this practice is somewhat common throughout the city, there are several prime examples hidden away along the city’s historic back streets.  While the most famous of these is Nyhavn which can be found on nearly ever postcard from Copenhagen, the rest are far more obscure.  This list is intended as a local’s insight to showcase locations you won’t find in your average guide.
