We got to see The Little Mermaid today in Copenhagen. The bronze statue, by Edvard Eriksen, is displayed on a rock by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade.
Based on the fairy tale of the same name by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, the statue is a major tourist attraction since 1913.
The Queen’s Tapestries at Christiansborg Palace
We also visited the Queen’s Tapestries at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen. They were a gift from the Danish business industry to Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II on her 50th birthday in 1990. There are 11 tapestries.
The tapestries depict the history of Denmark and the world, including the Viking Age, the Middle Ages, the Absolute Monarchy, the Reformation, World War II, the Present and even the Future.
