Denmark Instagrammed: Danish Architecture

Danish photographer Astrid Rasmussen has an eye for capturing distinctive architectural designs in Copenhagen. Here, she shares her top places to experience Danish architecture and beautiful historical buildings around the city.

Climb the golden spire and watch #Christianshavn from above 

Church of Our Savior is one of the most distinctive buildings in Copenhagen

"It is quite a journey to climb the 400 flights of stairs to the top, the last 150 being on the outside, up the golden spire. It is so beautiful, and I am lucky enough to be able to see it from my window. Sometimes the church plays rock or pop music on its carillons and you can hear it throughout most of Christianshavn. One day, I passed the church on my bike and they were playing a Radiohead track. How cool is that?"

A new museum will #rock you

The Danish Museum of Rock Music opens in 2016.

"Through my work I'm currently setting up an exhibition of some fantastic music photos at The Danish Museum of Rock Music. There is also going to be a wide range of memorabilia and other exhibitions of Danish music history through the ages, even the buildings themselves are exciting. I am very interested in music and I am really excited to see the museum open in 2016. I think it is going to be very popular and interesting to both Danish people and people visiting from abroad. Anyone who is interested in pop and rock music should go."
