THE CITY BRAND OF COPENHAGEN!
The Little Mermaid - (Den Lille Havfrue) in Danish - is undoubtedly one of the most photographed girls in the world - and is a legendary symbol and landmark for Copenhagen - and the number one tourist attraction in Denmark with over 1 million visitors every year. And she is absolutely the pride - and the prime City Brand of Copenhagen.
 
A Gift to the City by Carl Jacobsen
The stature is a gift to the city and donated in 1909 by the Danish brewer of Carlsberg brewery Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914) - after he had attended the ballet performance about the Little Mermaid at the Royal Theatre - and was fascinated of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) and play - as well as the female solo dancer Ellen Price (1878-1968) - who performed charmingly in the ballet - and also in front of
the young and talented sculptor Edvard Eriksen (1876-1959) - as the model to create the statue of the Little Mermaid.
