As it's a very famous landmark, I'm sure dozens of people have already written about the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen here on our illustrious boards. But I went, too, so here we go! One of Copenhagen's top attractions is the Little Mermaid -- she, of course, of Hans Christian Andersen fame (and later of Disney fame). Signs helpfully point the way toward the Little Mermaid, who sits on the edge of the water. Be prepared for a crowd of people who also want pictures with this famed aqua creature. The statue is very little, indeed, just four feet tall. She does, however, weigh nearly 400 pounds, so perhaps she is not little in that regard.
