This area is a hidden gem of Copenhagen. The army barracks of the old town are still in use today. Visit the area and enjoy the beautiful surrounds where the famous "Little Mermaid" sits on a rock overlooking the ocean.

Beautiful place for a stroll, especially during spring, with all the trees blooming. Really close to the Little Mermaid statue.

The hop on hop off bus audioguide didn't say much about this place, but I decided to see around. The first you can see are the colourful military barracks buit in the typical architectural style of the region. If you go further there's an old...More
