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.... Grab a hot dog... More

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.

While I personally found this fountain to be not that appealing, it is very centrally located. This late 19th century fountain features three storks and several frogs to match.

Located along Stroget this fountain looks great and was also interesting to look at and stood out among all other statues in the city.

This fountain is located on the Pedestrian Street Stroget. It is very close to various popular tourist attractions such as Nikolaj Church, Round Tower, The Church of The Holy Ghost, Holmens Church, the Old Stock Exchange, Thorvaldsens Museum and Christiansborg Palace. Do not miss a visit to Stork Fountain and Amagertorv square on your trip to Copenhagen.

Fountain typical of the style you get to see in Copenhagen. It is a useful landmark to navigate around town with. It also is a tad popular with what I think were graduating students...

A little, nice fountaind and statue, and ok place to both hang out and look at people, or just relax a bit while trawling Strøget. Nearby are both toilets and restaurants, bars and coffee shops, and of course shops, so put this in on your list while walking around!
