Useful information


On the seafront, the Little Mermaid, the symbol of the city of Copenhagen, sits on a rock on the water's edge looking forlornly towards the entrance to the huge port. This bronze statue by Edvard Eriksen was a gift from Carl Jocobsen, the son of the founder of the Carlsberg brewery, to his city and honours Hans Christian Andersen and the attachment Danes have with the sea.
