Stunning sculpture of ancient Nordic Goddess and chariot. Definitely worth a visit on the lovely walk around this City

If you like fountains – this is one fountain you will see while on your way to see the Little Mermaid and passing through the Kastellet. The fountain is quite magnificent and is based on a myth about a woman and her sons (oxen) ploughing the land where eventually Zealand is now located.

While we were walking around Copenhagen we came across the Gefion Fountain, it's based on the harbour front, it features a large scale of animal figures and is the largest monument in Copenhagen and is used as a wishing well, it's well worth a visit if you are in the area.

If you are visiting Kastlet then this fountain is in the garden next to a beautiful church. It smells of chlorine like all the Copenhagen fountains...and like swimming pools. It is lit up at night

This fountain is on the way to see the little mermaid statue so you wont't miss it. It really is a beautiful fountain - worth the time it takes to see it.

This was the surprise highlight of our bus tour. We did not know of this fountain before and so were delighted to come across it. It is massive and is a work of art. Water spurts out from behind the wheels as if the chariot is speeding across the water. If you love fountains and waterfalls then this is a... More

If you know the history behind this sculpting, then it makes a whole lot more sense when you see. There is a lot going on over the whole fountain. The Anglican church nearby is pretty neat too.

This monument is in front of St Alban Church (close to Little Mermaid statue). It is quite big indeed and it is quite stunning detail. If you are on the way to Mermaid statue then for sure you will pass by this fountain.

I think this fountain is beautiful. I saw it two years ago when I was here, and again today. Both times the crowds were enormous and it was impossible to get a good picture. The monument of a women with her four sons (oxen) is based upon Norse myth. I think the monument is majestic.

Whilst the fountain wasn't on when we visited in April 2015, I cannot imagine the fountain becoming spectacular because of the water. It is very large and the statue at the top is certainly interesting, but the whole fountain is just not that interesting. Likely better with water flowing though
