Owner description: 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.

Don't expect to see her from a boat tour, it is only the back you will see. I took a bus tour around the city and they stopped there for about 5 minutes or so which was plenty. Its a pretty statue with the harbour behind her. It is quite small but worth it if you can make it. It isn't my top pick but I am glad I went.

How can you go to Copenhagen and not see the Little Mermaid? Even though it's swarmed with tourists, you can still enjoy the beautiful statue in relative peace. Be patient - wait for the tourists in tour buses to leave, quickly take a few pictures (if you want to) before the next bus load of tourists come.

The harbour itself is very nice, I walked the entire way to the Little Mermaid from the New Harbour area. It's a very pleasant walk... and you get to see the opera house, the marble church and the royal residence on the way.

It's a small statue. If you go on a Canal Tour (which I recommend) you can see it from there, otherwise don't waste the time to walk to it.

At least I can say I have seen it ! I didn't realise it was so small , we saw it by boat so perhaps that was why
