  • The statue is very nice! there are a lot of people taking pictures and there is even a GR code to know more about it.  more »
  • Nice statue, not a lot of information surrounding it. Worth a look if you are near City Hall and you are a HC Andersen fan.  more »
  • One of the most important writers in Denmark's history, he has more than one statue in the city, the main one right next to the town hall building and the Tivoli. The statue is larger than a normal...  more »

  • Very nice place. We've been there in August and there was nobody around a statue. It's located near Tivoli park. I recommend to visit this place instead of (crowded) statue of Little Mermaid.
  • It's a nice statue, but nothing special
  • Wer kennt ihn nicht in Deutschland? Hans Christian Andersen, ein würdiges Denkmal wurde ihm hier gesetzt! Leider versperren zahlreiche, nicht immer rücksichtsvolle Touristen aus Asien den Blick zu ihm und es ist schwer, da mal selbst ran zu kommen! Who does not know him in Germany? Hans Christian Andersen, a worthy monument was placed here! Unfortunately, numerous, not always considerate tourists from Asia block the view to him and it's hard to get there yourself! For privacy reasons and for the protection of your privacy and the uninvolved persons, please also refrain from unpopulated pictures with your faces, or other people (who often do not know or agree that they are visible on the Internet and that is also severely punishable ), or those with children, upload! For a private photo album, fine, but please do not in the WWW! This is about places .... not about their faces, cars or parties! In an age of rising cybercrime and data abuse, you may not seem fully aware of what you and others may do to it! Thank you for your understanding! Обращение к пониманию людей: Из соображений конфиденциальности, а также для защиты вашей конфиденциальности и посторонних лиц, пожалуйста, не используйте неокрашенные фотографии с вашими лицами или другими людьми, которые часто не знают или не согласны с тем, что их можно увидеть в Интернете, и это для вас как наладчика такие картинки тоже очень наказуемы, или даже те с детьми, загружай! Для частного фотоальбома, хорошо, но, пожалуйста, не в WWW! Это касается мест, а не их лиц, вечеринок или машин! В эпоху растущей киберпреступности и злоупотребления данными вы, возможно, не совсем понимаете, что вы и другие можете сделать с вами! Спасибо за ваше понимание!
  • It's a large statue between a big building and a busy road. If you happen to stumble across it, it's worth a picture, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
  • Happy to see & touch the statue!
