One of our many sightseeing things to do. Easy enough to find and walk to. Not too busy in October. The mermaid is alot smaller than expected though. But if in Copenhagen you must see it.

We were told beforehand that the little mermaid is the second most disappointing attraction in Europe, and to be fair she is indeed little as the name suggests, but she is still a must see attraction in Copenhagen!
