Fairy tales have been used as bed time stories by parents for generations. They have entertained kids, inspired writers, and found prominence in contemporary pop culture. Many fairy tale characters have been immortalized in statues that stand on public squares, in gardens or on the riverside. Amusing Planet takes you around the world on a hunt for the most famous statues based on characters from the magical world of fairy tales.

The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen

The Little Mermaid statue is located at the Langelinie promenade, about 10-minute walk away from the cruise ship pier in Copenhagen, Denmark. The near life-size, bronze statue is seated on a rock by the waterside. Based on the 1837 fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the small and unimposing statue is an icon of the city, and has been a major tourist attraction since 1913.
