"Amalienborg to Langelinie" Langelinie Tip by AnnS
Langelinie, Copenhagen: 16 reviews and 31 photos
The nicest way to get to the Little Mermaid statue is to walk from Amalienborg, along the harbourfront esplanade. The path takes you through the grounds of an old fortress (Kastellet) and Churchillparken, with its Anglican Church, St Albans. The area around the church is beautiful and looks exactly like a scene from our Sussex villages here at home.
Further along the path is a wonderful sand sculpture of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, by Peter Busch-Jensen. It's encased in perspex to preserve it and the detail is marvellous. Unfortunately, the only information I could find on the internet is in Danish (http://www.bt.dk/article/20040429/ROYALT/104290083/1349) and I can't translate it, but I assume it was created to commemorate their marriage.
Further along the path, you come to Copenhagen's most famous sight - the Little Mermaid. I was surprised at how small it is but nobody can visit Copenhagen without getting a photo of it.
At the end of the path is the cruise ship terminal and from beside the bear statue, you can catch one of the frequent boats back to the city centre.
