H.C. Andersen’s relationship with Denmark was more than just by birth! In 19th century Denmark, most of the Danish, French and German tales were considered exotic and was often read in a selected group of people with many of them being high profile celebrities. H.C. Andersen- the author of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Snow Queen’, ‘Thumbelina’ and many other classics, made it to this group with Ludvig Phister (the famous Danish actor) reading one of the author’s book.
The H.C. Andersen Statue, a bronze statue located at the Copenhagen City Hall Square, pays tribute to the famous author and depicts him sitting with a book in his hand and holding a walking stick in the other, looking to his left. Come here to click a photo with the iconic author.
