This majestic fountain is magical at night. Take your camera. Then walk some 5 mins and get some moonlit views / shots of the Little Mermaid.

Beautiful fountain near the little mermeid. The fountain depicts the mythical story of the creation of the island of Zealand on which Copenhagen is located.

The Gefion Fountain is an impressive, large, bronze statue representing the story of goddess Gefion plowing enough land to create the island of Zealand. It is a grand site, with water shooting out everywhere. The sculpture and fountain are much more impressive than the nearby Little Mermaid, but not nearly as famous. Time to get a good agent.

This is a beautiful large fountain and monumental statue overlooking a very large pool. The sculpture stands on an imposing platform with the water feature adding to the overall effect rather than dominating it. The central figures are set off by elaborate carvings and the surroundings are lovely. Go ahead and get your picture taken in front of the Little... More

Too many people, too much noise, too many goods for sale. They have some spectacles there might are interesting, but, overall, do it spend much time there.

If you are in Copenhagen and looking at the little mermaid dont cheat yourself of the much nicer sculpture just around the corner. Gefion is based on Norse Mythology, Ynglinga saga, where the Swedish king Gylfi promised Gefjun the territory she could plow in a night.

We were visiting for the day off a cruise ship and we had planned our walkabout to include a visit past this very attractive fountain. Take plenty of time to study it in detail. Not a lot of information is available as the palaces etc. take priority but worth visiting when going to see the Little Mermaid. There is also... More
