The Little Mermaid is Highly Disappointing: Better ideas for visitors to Denmark
By Kay Xander Mellish
If you’ve seen it, you know the Little Mermaid is only about four feet tall – that’s 1.25 meters. You probably own pillows that are bigger than the Little Mermaid. At any rate, all the Copenhagen tourist boat trips go right by it, so your tourists can get the photos they need for their Instagram or Facebook feeds. If they want, they can climb out of the boat and onto the slippery rock where the mermaid sits for a photo. There are plenty of other things to do in Denmark. In this podcast, I outline ways to eat Danish pastry, trips to historial centers, picnics in the park, the best museums and what to do after dark.
