The little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid - an iconic landmark

The Little Mermaid statue is part of Danish history and pride. We are known for it in the world because the beautiful statue is associated with the adventurous story of The Little Mermaid – known from Hans Christian Andersen’s books.

Copenhagen is only approx. 1 hour drive from our beautiful campsite. It is therefore an obvious destination for your day trip. Whether you are going on a shopping trip or relaxing at one of the city’s many cafés. A must is of course that you are way past the iconic statue on Langelinie. The children definitely know The Little Mermaid from Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales – and what a fantastic experience it is not to come and see it?

After experiencing all that the capital has to offer – or at least what you could achieve in one day – you can return to cosiness, relaxation and scenic surroundings at our 5-star campsite and holiday resort.

The little mermaid story

The statue was erected on Langelinie on 23 August 1913. So it has been standing there for more than 100 years. The statue was a gift from brewer Carl Jacobsen to the City of Copenhagen. It is made of bronze and granite stone – and the young mermaid sits beautifully on a raised stone at the water’s edge.

As most people know, the sculpture is inspired by HC Andersen’s tale of the mermaid who sacrifices her life at sea to be reunited with her prince on land. It is because of this world-famous adventure that the statue has also become known throughout the world and is well visited by tourists daily. It has even been lent to China, which can not get enough of the Danish adventure at all!

The Little Mermaid on Langelinie is a must when you are in Copenhagen! The area around the statue offers many opportunities for a cozy day. You can enjoy a wonderful summer day with walks along the water or in Langelinie park. Or move towards the city and find a great place to enjoy a lunch after you have captivated the beautiful statue long enough.
