  • Worth a photo this statue of the creator of the fable of the Little Mermaid. Scanning the q code with the phone you can hear his voice. Particular and charming!

  • We went to take a look of this image. He faces the Tivoli amusement park with back, next to the town hall with beautiful hell Tower. Everything is in the town square where half is recreated in a construction site. But it remains about the place from where you can all directions.

  • A great man who wrote wonderful stories. It's nice to see him immortalized.
  • 1. Sit on his knee 2. Take a photograph 3. Share your adventure
  • That's a statue, nothing more. I kinda wonder why this one isn't Copenhagen's symbol, instead of the rather diminutive little mermaid...
  • it is a great statue
  • I had a pleasant stay. You could see and hear some of the stories Mr Andersen wrote. One negative thing was that the receptionist tried to make us go to the other museum too (there's another one in the building), and it seemed she was only after our money. But other than that, it was quite great. A bit small, but still not too small.
