What people are saying:

Gefion fountain, which was not too far from the Little Mermaid by bike, was very picturesque. Bus loads of tourists stop there to buy some snacks from street vendors and snap some Instagram-worthy photos with the magnificent fountain. We personally loved it because the water from the fountain sparkled with the dazzling sun.

    Very dramatic water fountain

    This was a surprise on our walk, this large dramatic water fountain was pretty amazing. This woman stands and controls a large bull, and water is finding its way down in front.
