You are here

The Little Mermaid, Copenhagen, Denmark
There’s a very unique place in Copenhagen - in this city lives a Little Mermaid who sits on a rock by the waterside along the Langelinie promenade. Every day she swims to the surface from the bottom of the sea in the hope to see her beloved. This magnificent 100-year-old sculpture of bronze and granite created by Edvard Eriksen was inspired by the fairy-tale written by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen about a little mermaid who fell in love with a handsome prince. The 385 pound statue was a gift to the city from Carl Jacobsen - a Danish brewer who was captivated by the character after watching a ballet performance based on the fairy tale at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen. Today, the Little Mermaid is an icon of the city and a major tourist attraction.
