The Gefion Fountain is largen fountain near Copenhagen harbour & close to little mermaid statue It is located in Nordre Toldbod area next to Kastellet.



the fountain was constructed in the beginning of the 20th century .It was designed by Danish artist Anders Bundgaard.

If you head up to the Little Mermaid you can include this on the walk.

The goddess Gefjun fountain, Copenhagen. Oct 11, 2010
The goddess gefjun fountain is located in the grounds of of the kastelet fortress in copenhagen. It is one of the landmarks in copenhagen thats not to be missed because it tells a special history (mythological in sense).

the fountain was constructed in the beginning of the 20th century. In norse mythology, gefjun is the goddess of ploughing and one night, she decided to plow a part of scandinavia with her oxes (her sons) and in turn separated denmark from sweden. (as told by a friend in copenhagen, named klaus) however by researching, it tells another different story.

the fountain, although not as majestic as any other sculpted fountains in europe, it feels special because it depicts in a fictional way, a part of history between denmark and sweden.

its not easy to miss the fountain since its located along the promenade of copenhagen. Do not miss this at night because the fountain is beautifully lighted!
