You pass by it on the long walk to see the Little Mermaid. Situated on a slopping promenade, made into a photo opportunity with the St. Albans Church in its proximity.

The fountain is near the harbour entrance and not far from the Little Mermaid. A great place for a photo opportunity and well worth a quick visit

Found this whilst walking back to town from the Little Mermaid. Large fountain that depicts the mythical story of the creation of the island of Zealand on which Copenhagen is located. Good photo opportunity.

This fountain is a great stop on the way to the little mermaid, its about 300 meter from the little mermaid. The fountain is also right next to Kastellet and where the royal family boards “Dannebrog” when they go sailing on the ship

A very striking fountain that we came across as we walked along the waterfront from the Little Mermaid statue. It wasn’t as crowded as the Little Mermaid, and its much bigger. We were easily able to take some photographs without people in the way.

Saw this on our way to the little mermaid statue - things here are close together so why not take them all in on a nice little walk - also saw St Alban's Church and walked part of Kastellet.
