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.

Got there relatively early in the day and still a ton of other tourists trying to take pictures with the statue. This made it a bit difficult but just had to wait our turn.

It's one of Copenhagen's 'must do' tourist attractions, but she's a lot small than you think, and situated in a unimposing position (very close to shore near where the liners dock). It's a fair old walk from main Copenhagen to find her, and when you...More

It is really underwhelming.Small unimpressive monument, with a good story. DO NOT visit on the weekend. The crowds are enormous (for this?). Trust me, it's not worth it.

It's a small statue on a stone in the water, it is pretty boring. Denmark is such a wonderful country there are almost only stuff to see and do which is way cooler than the little Mermaid, go explore our wonderful country.

I know it's supposed to be a must-see when you're in Copenhagen, but it's surprisingly small, and I'm not sure what all the fuss is about.
