You will struggle to spend any time at all in Copenhagen without finding yourself at the foot of this fountain. It seems to extract a pull on people (and pigeons). It is also rather beautiful, in a quiet, understated, Danish way. I like it. :)

A fountain in the middle of Copenhagen but when I passed there was no water to be found, just a lot of people and pigeons, there was even a child running around inside it. Very busy area.

This is a nice fountain in the middle of the city. You'll probably walk past it at some point during your stay. If you are traveling in mid-November and December, this fountain is in front of the Christmas Market area. This is certainly worth visiting. If you are there during the Christmas Market, and if you like wine, don't miss... More

The Stork Fountain is one of the most crowded sections of the Stroget, one of the best pedestrian streets in the world. At all hours of the day and night it's the place to meet and greet and to sit for people watching. The square where it sits is called the Amagertorv. This cobblestoned square once housed the city market.... More

This landmark is in a very very busy bustling square. The fountain itself is is very intricate and quiet beautiful. It's used as a meeting place for pigeons and people alike.

Have been there many times while shopping with my girlfriend. The square is cute with a lovely fountain in the middle, many street artists and tons of shops and cafés around. Would recommend. P.S sometimes it's very very busy.

This is a funny fontain. Take a picture and continue. Better cafés are in Christianshavn or around Nørreport, Nørrebro and Vesterbro. Better shopping in Frederiksberg and Østerbro.

The Stork fountain is the most memorable landmark when walking along Strøget shopping area. It is towards the eastern end in the wide paved area called Amagertorv which was once a medieval fish market. Today it is Copenhagen's main meeting point.

More than a fountain---the heartbeat of the Stroget, the oldest and longest pedestrian street system in the world. Sit here and enjoy the vibrancy of a great urban streetscape. Established in 1962, the carfree pedestrian zone stretches from the western Town Hall Square to the eastern The Kings New Square---mixing medieval, modern, retail, cultural, events, people....

The Stork Fountain was designed by Edvard Petersen and Vilhelm Bissen in 1894. The sculpture is eye catching and this is a place where friends gather together.
