On Saturday, September 9th, a tourist visiting Copenhagen triggered disapproval from onlookers as she climbed the city’s iconic Little Mermaid statue.

Nineteen-year-old Dylan Trinkler, who witnessed the incident, recounted, “The Danish people there were saying, ‘this is Danish heritage’ and ‘that’s artwork.’ They started asking her why she was doing it, saying that it was disrespectful, but she just laughed it off.”

The sculpture, situated at Langelinie Pier, has been a symbol of Copenhagen since its unveiling in 1913. The Little Mermaid statue holds immense cultural and historical significance for Denmark, making the tourist’s actions all the more objectionable to locals and visitors alike.

This incident highlights the need for tourists to show respect for historical monuments and landmarks, especially those with deep cultural roots, by adhering to posted guidelines and being mindful of local sentiments.
