“beautiful place between a park and wharf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

You won't need to spend much time there, so I recommend it for a pleasant walk, visit churchill park, the fount, wharf and the Little Mermaid. You can take nice pictures there, using the church or the sea as background.

“Nice fountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

It's a nice fountain but you wouldn't make your way there just for that. If you're doing a long walk, it's one of many lovely sights to take in and as nice a fountain as it is, it's only a fountain. Sadly I only had my guide book to tell me about it. Perhaps I would have benefitted from a little more information - and it didn't help that it was a miserable grey day when I went. But still ...

“Interesting, though not spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We came across this fountain on the way to the Little Mermaid. It's worth a stop and a few photos, but its design won't jump out at you as something truly exceptional.

“Not to be missed on your way to the little mermaid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

Fully agree that the Gefion fountain is way much impressive than the Little Mermaid. You can't missed it if you are going to see the Little Mermaid (that you might as well see since you are so close). Another extraordinary gift by the Carlsberg family to Copenhagen!

“Beautiful fountain in a great setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Near the harbor and the Marble church you will find this beautiful fountain dedicated to the nordic God Gefion. The fountain is large with tiers of water and designs. Take some time to look at it and notice the wonderful detail. A walk along this promenade which is directly across from the opera house is worth the effort.
