“Gefion: Better than the Mermaid”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I came across this fountain on my way to see the little mermaid. While it was cool to see the Mermaid, it simply doesn't compare to this amazing fountain. It's in close proximity to the Mermaid and is almost impossible to miss. If you visit it while the sun in low in the horizon (but not too low) you get a really cool effect on the statue.

“Beautiful fountain”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Near the English Church & not far from the Little Mermaid. A stunning fountain, well worth looking at.

“Near the Little Mermaid”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

In the Northeast part of town near the Little Mermaid, Churchill Park, St. Albans Church, and the Resistance Museum (recently damaged by an arson fire so closed for now) so you can walk or drive by when visiting something else. It is interesting to see but could be skipped if you're on a limited schedule.

“An extremely impressive fountain in a nice area”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Find a good day, and take a walk through the Citadel area, see the Gefion Fountain, and then up to the Little Mermaid statue - you will not be disappointed. This fountain is considerably more impressive than the Little Mermaid statue, and worth a stop by. This is located in a stunning area, and on a beautiful day like we had for our recent trip there, this was a great stop to make along the way!

“Very impressive”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Situated in the park behind the Little Mermaid, but so much more impressive than the iconic figure. A high and powerful sculpture of a goddess driving a chariot pulled by mythical bulls - a very powerful statue in a fountain on top of a lovely cascade. All helped by some sunny weather. A really powerful image and great for photos
