The Genetically Modified Little Mermaid

Copenhagen, for many, is synonymous with the famous statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid (Den Lille Havfrue), but did you know that a 10 minute walk north of the real Little Mermaid you can find her less-known, genetically modified little sister? While the mermaid poses on her rocks in the harbor, the rest of the genetically modified family is rising up from the 400m2 fountain on the square. | map

 

Copenhagen Bicycles | Part I: Cykelslangen & Bryggebroen

A bike ride on the new orange ‘Harbor Ramp’ for bicycles and bryggebroen – the bicycle bridge connecting Copenhagen’s Vesterbro quarter with Islands Brygge. The ramp starts at the entrance to Fisketorvet Shopping Center. This innovative, winding bicycle path is built at 5.5 meter’s height and takes the biker through a landscape of modern danish architecture. It is an amazing example of smart urban city planning that separates the cyclists from the pedestrians for better safety in traffic | website | map
