A Little Mermaid experience in Copenhagen

Most of us have heard the story of The Little Mermaid when we were young. It is a tale of longing, heartache, magic and of course; mermaids. With this Little Mermaid experience in Copenhagen, you can be a part of the story!

We invite you to step into the story; you will experience the famous tale of The Little Mermaid as a StoryKeeper recruit. The narrator of this self-guided audio walking tour through Copenhagen is Frederik. He is a Danish StoryKeeper eager to share the adventure with you. Together, you will explore some of the most famous sights in Copenhagen. While doing that, you’ll solve puzzles which will unlock parts of the mermaid’s story, and experience interactive elements that will tie fiction and reality together into one immersive experience. It doesn’t matter if this classic story is one of your favorites, or if you have never read it before – we promise you an experience out of the ordinary either way! Along the walking tour route, you will collect pieces of something of great importance to the mermaid. In the end – maybe you can help her to put all those pieces together again?
