Everyone remembers the "Little Mermaid" but few recall this masterpiece located quite nearby. The Norse goddess Geflon drives her mythical oxen through the water. The sculptor has managed to create an exciting scenario in massive blocks of stone with water cascading all around The sheer power portrayed is magnificent. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful fountain/sculpture - near the Amailienborg Palace and not far from the Little Mermaid statue. Go early, before the tour buses descend on the area. Plan to stroll to the Little Mermaid and down to the Palace. Enjoy some leisure time sitting along the harbour/canal and feast on the view of the beautiful new opera building across the water.

I love the story about the Nordic goddess, Gefion, and how she ploughed the island Zealand out of the Swedish land. Enjoy the steam of water coming out of the nostrils of the four bulls fiercely led by Gefion.
Throw coins in the fountain and wish to come back to Copenhagen.

well, the guide said these were oxen. However, there were obvious anatomical structures that said loudly "these are bulls" . these boys had not been modified , if you get my drift.

great fable that goes with this impressive fountain..grab a guide and ask them all about it. Don't miss the opportunity to pop your head inside the Church beside the fountain, which is also very pleasant and photogenic.
