• Copenhagen | Den lille havfrue

    The Little Mermaid was one of my favourite Disney movies when I was a child. Whenever we played in the pool I was always Ariel and even wished I had her beautiful red hair.  In Copenhagen there is a Little Mermaid statue at the waterside of the Langelinie promenade which 75% of tourists to Copenhagen go visit.
    The statue was created by Edvard Eriksen and is based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen (the Danish author).  As mentioned this is a major tourist attraction and has been one since 1913.
    Because it attracts so many people it is quite a nightmare to get close by and you have to literally force your way through the tour buses of people. Luckily I managed to work my way right to the water's edge (dragging JP behind me) so that I could snap a few photos of the statue (even though the sun was not really allowing the bronze statue to be photographed nicely).

    The thing that really struck me was how small and unimposing the statue is, I thought it to be much bigger because the scale of all other statues I had seen in Copenhagen were really massive. The Little Mermaid is only 1.2m tall and weighs only 175kg. I took the photos below just to give people an idea of how small the statue is.

    I am really enjoying doing these posts because I get to relive the trip and share the memories with all of you. I will continue to share the different things we went to see. If you have any questions on any of the places we went to, please leave a comment below and I will happily answer them.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Big Hugs,
