You should definetely go there. Not just for the fountain itself but because this place is probably the most central Square in Copenhagen. It is placed where to central streets meet: Strøget and Købmagergade and all the shops and big department stores are close by. There is also a good view of the Parliament Building (Christinansborg casttle)

Nice fountain with storks about to take flight. It's situated in a busy square surrounded by shops and cafes. Nice if your passing by but don't make a special journey.

Just a bronze fountain of three storks located on the famous Stroget Street. Give it a few minutes for some pictures and then continue your journey.

The key to visiting this fountain is to time your trip to be around Midsommer, when graduates come by the truckload (not an expression -- via actual trucks!) to dance around, and wade/swim in the fountain! Grab a table with a good view of the fountain in the evening, and wait for the show to start! Have your camera handy,... More

It’s a famous fountain at Amagertorv Square on Stroeget. It was inaugurated in 1894 to celebrate the silver anniversary for Crown Prince Frederik (VIII) and Crown Princess Louise. From here, you can continue to stroll on Stroeget or walk south toward Christiansborg Slot.

The statue is quite plain in design but it fits in a very busy square with shops and restaurants in the centre of Copenhagan.

This fountain is in the middle of the square. I would guess if you find fountains interesting then you will like this one as it has some nice details. As an attraction I thought it average. It took me about 3 minutes to be done looking at it

One of the nicest fountains in the city. In the heart of the shopping district, it will surprise you for its originality.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
