You can do the walk anytime that suits you, alone or with someone else. The harbor is particularly poetic in the Twilight.


You'll experience the city's history through the eyes and ears of The Little Mermaid: Her first encounter with the land that later on becomes Copenhagen and her life and love on land. The story ends in the present day where she has become an old woman in the pulsing city, and finally is able to tell her own story.

The new interpretation reflects the changes in women views from H. C. Andersen’s golden ages to Todays strong, independent Copenhagen women.

The play is written by artist Maj D with consultant support from the well known author and literature professor Martin Zerlang. Music by the Danish composer "Rumpoistol".
