Hans Christian Andersen, Copenhagen

(2.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Hans Christian Andersen, or the fairy-tale house, will guide you through some universally known stories, such as the Emperor's New Clothes and Little Mermaid. The house features fiberglass figures arranged in a series of tableaux with lighting effects and a three-lingual sound system in Danish, English, and German. Visit the writer's study to hear him giving an account of his life and travels. Quiz questions on boxes and barrels make the exhibit more interesting for kids. The museum also features a handwritten manuscript and a collection of props and appliances that belonged to the writer. Admission is free with the Copenhagen Card.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this exhibition despite reading the other reviews. The animations were fun and interactive. It isn't a long exhibition which is good as you could get bored had it gone on longer. ...  more »
  • Very nostalgic because the Place talks about how Hans became well known with his books and loads more which are surprises :)  more »
  • We walked for an hour trying to find this place (more due to our bad map reading skills than it's location). When we eventually found it, we wished we hadn't! Thankfully, it was free with our Copenhag...  more »

  • 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...
  • 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.
  • it is a great statue
