I guess I am getting jaded by all of the statues I have been seeing these past years... but I find it difficult to get excited by a statue of someone anymore, even if it is that of one of the most famous Fairytale Authors.

Of course you should see it and it's hard to miss as it's right around where many other tourist attractions are. If you anywhere near the Town Hall, Tivoli Gardens, the Glyptothek then you should take a few steps detour and just have a stroll past this statue to have a look. After all you are in Denmark and he is one of the most well known to us.

This statue of Hans Christian Anderson is pretty impressive, and right by one of the entrances to Tivoli Gardens. I wouldn't make a special visit to see it though.

This was off the main square of City Hall and a fun statue of HC Anderson to see. A lot to do and entertainment on the City Hall Square - Don't forget to try the hot dogs!
