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

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.
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.
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding
neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
