What people are saying:

Everyone who goes to Copenhagen seems to go to the little mermaid to play a card. There is a big difference from what we think, the little mermaid is really small, the tourists are especially large; the little people sit by the sea, the wind and sun, the tourists come and go.

Introduction

Copenhagen's most famous tourist attraction, the Little Mermaid sits on a rock overlooking the harbour. Created by Edward Eriksen in 1913 who was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale. The model for the Mermaid was dancer Ellen Price. The statue's head was stolen in 1964 and although police hunted for several years, neither the perpetrator nor the head were found. The head has been replaced by a replica but jokers still occasionally try to saw it off.
