This definitely piqued my interest, but disappointed as there was not much to see and no nearby reference of what the sculpture actually looked like before it was fully submerged. One pic is what I captured one of the days, and the others is what...More

We had stopped on the bridge for a quick rest after marching round the city seeing the sights when I noticed a sign on the canal wall warning of an underwater structure. We could only just see it as it was completely submerged but a...More

Visited it in the beginning of February and it was entirely submerged and hardly even visible. Looks just like an unidentified object floating in the water unless you actually know what it is.

We had just bought drinks at the 7/11 and were about to cross over the bridge and head over to Christiania. One of use glanced down and saw this sculpture! We really could not see it well, but these unexpected surprises are delightful and memorable!

It's a statue. Underwater. Well signposted, so you can't really call it a hidden gem - but it is worth a quick stop and look. Not on my top 10 places, but it is free. And that's not to be sniffed at in Copenhagen.
