Dedicated to Gefion- the Norse Goddess, the fountain catches your eye even with the stunning view of the harbour around it! The Gefionspringvandet consists of a sculpture of Gefion taking the reins of 4 bulls.

Even though the fountain is quiet a sight during the day, evenings truly make the place shine with the whole area basked in blue lights.

The sculpture was created by Danish artist Anders Bundgaard during 1897-1899 and still remains to holds its charm after all these years. The basin was added in the early 20th century and soon the place was opened to the general public. If you have a secret wish, toss a coin here to ask just what you want!

  • I generally love and treasure everything I see while I travel. Experiences that I truly treasure. At this fountain, located at Churchill Park, I awe at the sculptures, the biggest monument in Copenhagen, though at that time I didn't know the significant of it. Never-mind, my eyes wondered and took a couple of pictures. Very nice.

  • The biggest fountain in Copenhagen. Almost too massive but still beautiful with the sculpture of Gefion in the middle and the lights in the nostrals of the bulls

  • Amazing fountain! Must see in cph :)

  • Beautiful area to take a walk. It's all so open and beautiful and there are many places to stop, rest and take in the scenery.

  • Wandering around in Copenhagen is amazing. This statue is one of the treasures in wandering around.
