The settting is pretty, but unless you are aware of the historical importance or the national pride surrounding the statue it is somewhat underwhelming. There is a nice place to take photos, and the walk is pleasant.

I knew what to expect when coming to visit the Little Mermaid statue and it didn’t disappoint. We walked along the river from our hotel until we saw the mass of people on the shoreline ahead. Not easy to really enjoy this statue with all...More

The little mermaid was much smaller than I expected but was near a beautiful park with blossoming trees.

What you see in the picture is what you get. The cost of opportunity is not worth it, especially if you are traveling only for a couple of days.

From my hotel I could pretty much walk anywhere. The mermaid was slightly further & I wanted to do a river cruise so decided to combine the two. I was not concerned about having a selfie with her! I’m glad I did as when we...More

Visited here whilst in Copenhagen, I'm sure most people who visit the city will do. The statue is a bit underwhelming, but if you walk up the water side from the city it's lovely. You get great veiws and pass through a really nice park....More
