It's a nice statue, you can't miss it if you're visiting the city hall. Apparently the original statue had been planned for just one lur blower, but had to be retrofitted for two, since apparently lurs were always tuned in pairs (thanks, Wikipedia).

This monlith with the two hornblowers does catch your eye. The legend that they blow their horn every time a virgin walks by is a cute one. However, it is just one monument in a city of monuments many of which are much more viewable...More

What the heck is a lur blower? Lurs were large metal horns blown by Danes on ceremonial occasions in the Bronze Age, around three thousand years ago. You can still see these horns in Denmark's National Museum. They can still be played! This statue is...More

It's a statue. Of Lur Blower. I am not sure how something like this could be either excellent or terrible. I mean, it is just a statue, of Lur Blower, in the middle of Copenhagen.

We saw this statue when we were busy exploring the city center on route to Tivoli. You can’t really miss it as it stands right on top of the statue on a road less travelled (not that busy road).

We saw this column after our visit to the city hall. We noticed it because of the horns. We had just seen these unique and authentic horns at the Museum of Denmark. It was good to see how the horns are actually held and blown.

Once you’re at the column read up of the history of it - it’s interesting! It compliments the rest of the square.

Great statue to stop at when walking past. The story is hilarious, apparently these two will blow their horns if a virgin walks past...it has been quiet in Copenhagen for sometime apparently. Just next to the City Hall. Worth seeing.
