The Gefion fountain is still very distinctive. The spraying underwater joy of children makes Liu want to stop time.
The fountain is not very big, but the design is very exquisite, and the sculptures are very detailed and lifelike.
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 cute and close to the little mermaid statue

The Gefion Fountain (Danish: Gefionspringvandet) is a large fountain on the harbour front in Copenhagen, Denmark. It features a large-scale group of animal figures being driven by the legendary Norse goddess, Gefjun. It is located in Nordre Toldbod area next to Kastellet and immediately south of Langelinie. It is the largest monument in Copenhagen and used as a wishing well.
Pretty fountain in the citadel (Kastellet) area, not far from the Little Mermaid. Worth a quick photo. Based on legend the Swedish king Gylfi promised Gefjun the territory she could plow in a night. She turned her four sons into oxen, and the territory they plowed out of the earth was then thrown into the Danish sea between Scania and the island of Fyn. The hole became a lake called Lögrinn and Leginum (locative). Snorri identifies the lake Löginn, as the lake of Old Sigtuna west of Stockholm, i.e., Lake Mälaren, an identification that he returns to later in the Saga of Olaf the Holy.
