  • We love the statue of Andersen that is very close to the town hall and if I am not mistaken in the Copenhagen. And the square there is named after him. Memories of our children's tales.

  • Of course, I see the most famous statue everyday when I drive to work through the town Hall Square. However, the most impressive thing for me is when you go right up to the statue you can see how much shines the statuary's leg area that's because mass of tourists come every day and hold them and take pictures with it!

  • 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
