About Christian X Monument, Copenhagen

Located on Sankt Annæ Plads public square, the Christian X Statuen depicts the King on a horseback and facing North. Christian X added a lot to the progress of Copenhagen especially during the Second World War. He also received a birthday wish from Hitler to which the King replied a simple “My best thanks, Chr Rex”. The minimal reply enraged Hitler.

As a ruler he was often seen taking rides around Copenhagen on his horse without any security. When others questioned his bold moves he replied that the whole of Denmark was his bodyguard. The King had a fabulous personality and was 6.5 feet tall and his quote of “My God, my country, my honour” is something that stayed with the people even after his death. In 1947, Christian X died after falling off his horse and Denmark lost one their finest rulers ever.

Today, the bronze statue celebrates his life and all that he has done for his Kingdom and with the surrounding historic buildings, the statue does offer a fabulous place to take photos.

Christian X Monument, Copenhagen Reviews

  • Always a magnet for tourism, the Christian X monument is a gorgeous sculpture, that towers meters above the ground. Not worth the visit for a hip tourist visiting in cafés, restaurants and danish culture, but for the classically art interested.

  • Big bronze sculpture of famous Danish king

  • The king of Denmark (and the only king of Iceland) ruled from 1912 to 1947. He was known as an authoritative ruler, with no great sense for democracy, but won the hearts of his nation during the German occupation and soon became the symbol of resistance.

  • Very nice avenue

  • Yep, that's a statue. Delivered as promised
