What people are saying:

lovely walk on a sunny day. the statue recalls the popular fairytale making you feel a child again. not too many people so it’s enjoyable. there was a seagull on the head of the mermaid, nice shot for a photo.

Additional Information

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 The head has been replaced by a replica but jokers still occasionally try to saw it off.
