H.C. Andersen Castle, Copenhagen

3.7
An icon constructed after the famed author commonly known for his children's fairy tales, H.C. Andersen Castle stands proud next to the Stadhuis. Andersen spent much of his life in Copenhagen, and many of the places around the statue, such as the Royal Danish Theatre, played important roles in his life. Take part in the custom of proud locals by having your picture taken next to the likeness of the famous author. Tales you may know of Andersen's include "The Little Mermaid," "The Ugly Duckling," and "The Emperor's New Clothes." Put H.C. Andersen Castle on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Copenhagen trip itinerary maker .

  • By far one might wonder if the statue does not represent the creator of Tivoli as HC Andersen is looking in the direction of the Park, but no that's the writer. The statue is friendly without being beautiful, its close positioning of the large artery is incomprehensible even if there must be a reason for that. Nothing exceptional but it is worth a visit between the pedestrian street and Tivoli or the Glyptothek.

  • It is a bronze statue in front of the Town Hall (next). It is bigger than I had imagined. Personally, from the statue of the Little Mermaid, the spectacular is.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
