“Good photo opportunity”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

This oversized statue is one of the favorite places to take a picture and move on. The good thing is that it is there to be enjoyed. My daughter climbed on Andersen's knee and we made a sweet photo. If you happen to pass this statue by, go on climb up and sit on his knees, imagine you're little again and he is telling you his stories.

“Easy photostop”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Not terribly exciting. But its right near the Central Station and Tivoli, so you don't have to go completely out of the way to see it if you want to take a few snaps.

“Anderson statue in Copenhagen”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This makes a popular location for a photo shoot with the statue of the famous children story writer which most tourists hav fond memories. Located just adjacent to the City Hall and across the street overlooking Tivoli, it has become a symbol of the city.
