Gefionspringvandet, Copenhagen

(4.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Located on the waterfront of Copenhagen, Gefionspringvandet is the largest and most impressive fountain in the city. Designed by Danish artist Anders Bundgaard and installed in 1908, the fountain was donated by the Carlsberg Foundation in honor of the brewery's 50-year anniversary. Take a closer look at the sculpting, and notice that it depicts the mythical creation story behind the island of Zealand. Here, the goddess Gefjun has turned her four sons into oxen in order to plow the land, after King Gylfi promised to give her whatever territory she was able to plow in one night's time.

  • It is situated close to many essential Copenhagen (Kastellet, statue of the Little Mermaid, etc.). It is a sculpture which represents an important passage from Norse mythology. Bella, if accessed from Kastellet will do so through a bridge that connects to this part of town and but by staircases that bring us step by step to imposing sculpture.

  • Encountered on the way heading towards the fortress from the amalienborg Palace, to see the little mermaid statue. I feel like your going to see the little mermaid statue greets is happy. I walked outside and thanks for the encouragement I'm like and feel good. I took many pictures.
