This fountain is located in front of a church very close to the Citadel. It shows huge animals driven by a Norse goddess. There is some legend attached to it, as our tour guide explained. It is about 100 years old.

Beautiful fountain. The HOHO bus stopped for 5 minutes and that was enough time to see it and take photos.

It's right by the little mermaid so hopefully you see it on your way to or away from her. Good pic op and its around a number of things. Maybe not the biggest must but it's a nice fountain.

The statue / fountain is at the entry point of the park where the little mermaid statue is located. It is a visually interesting statue and well worth a few minutes of time to appreciate the unusual design.

Gefion Fountain (Gefionspringvandet) was designed by artist Anders Bundgaard. This incredibly beautiful fountain is located nearby Langelinie and it is accessible during the whole day. In my opinion it is definitely worth seeing.

Walking around this place towards the Little mermaid or (in the opposite direction) towards Nyhavn offers good photo stop opportunities.
