Owner description: Born of a fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, the statue incarnation of the Little Mermaid has watched over Copenhagen's harbor since 1913. In 2010, Den Lille Havfrue, as she is known in Danish, left her post to represent Denmark at the World's Fair in Shanghai.

Mobbed by tourists and almost impossible to have your photo taken without a plethora of others in the shot. Nevertheless it had to be done, after all - one can hardly visit Copenhagen without seeing the mermaid... otherwise very anticlimactic.

Waste of time. Don’t bother. It’s a famous iconic statue but there is little or nothing of real merit. I would not go out of my way to see it.

This attraction is extremely busy and is very frantic to try and take a photo without other people pushing in although it a truly magical monument. It is beguiling with lots of effulgence. It’s not really a must see because it is perfectly fine to see it on photos but I would recommend!

I was totally underwhelmed by this iconic symbol of Copenhagen. Everyone always talks about the Little Mermaid statue. It's not very large and even though it is early in the tourist season - there are tons of tourists milling about so it's difficult to get a nice shot of the statue, let alone a shot of you & the statue.

The statute itself seemed small but its location on the harbor is great. The bike ride to the statute's location is easy and beautiful. Plenty of things to see and a cafe with lovely views nearby for a refreshment stop.
