The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen

I love this attraction although it’s one of the smallest it’s still one of the best and most unique and amazing. Everytime I see a picture of the little Mermaid it almost makes me think of a Denmark full of magic and wonder on every place that you go. The Little Mermaid is just 4 feet tall! that’s not too big! She sits close to the shore of the cruise harbor “Langelinie” on her granite resting place, in the harbor are Nyhavn. It is a short walk from the main cruise pier, nearby many of Copenhagen’s other major attractions and locations.
