This fountain is one of the largest monuments in the city. Toss in a coin and make a wish - it is said that it shall come true.
Note the statue of a woman with four bulls in front of her set at the top of the fountain. The statue represents the pagan goddess Gefion, or Gejfun.
According to a legend, she turned her own sons into bulls and used them to plough all the land she could within 24 hours. The land that she had ploughed was granted to her by the King Gylfe of Sweden, and eventually became Zealand, the main island of Denmark.
The fountain's creation took unusually long - more than 10 years until the final work was first shown to the people of Copenhagen in 1908.
