Back Copenhagen: from the pages of a fairy tale

Copenhagen celebrates the legacy of fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen, be it with his statue in the city centre or the Little Mermaid off the city coast. Our itinerary will take you on a journey to encounter goldsmiths, paper sculptors, and porcelain makers, whose jewellery and sculptures mimic the world created by Andersen and immerse you in his tales.
