Kastellet & Little Mermaid
Her silhouette is used as a symbol for the city and she is one of its most-visited attractions, but there’s no avoiding the fact the Little Mermaid is–as her name suggests–a very modest young lady. Many visitors are surprised by just how meek she seems, sitting on her rock in the harbor. To make the visit worthwhile, once you’ve seen her you can explore Kastellet (the Citadel) as well. It’s a remarkably well-preserved star-shaped fortress that dates back to the 17th century. It was once part of a ring of defenses that encircled the city and is still occupied by troops who raise and lower the flag each day.
