  • 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 »

  • 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.
