The Stork Fountain is located on Amagertorv in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It was a present to Crown Prince Frederik (later Frederik VIII) and Crown Princess Louise in connection with their silver wedding anniversary in 1894. It depicts three storks about to set off.

Since 1950, it has been a tradition that newly graduated midwives dance around the fountain.

  • The beautiful square, and fountains it's one of the central places of Copenhagen, and a good place to meet if you are with the group, it's near the courts building. It's a great place if you want to take some nice photos while you're in Copenhagen
  • Touristic pedestrian alley full of shops. It looks good but doesn't have much to stand out from the multitude of similar places in Europe
