I would argue, that Tuborg is the most popular beer brand! ;)

I thought the same. Maybe the question should specify that it is the most popular brand worldwide. There is no doubt that Tuborg is the most popular brand among Danes. As a teenager who knows a lot of young people, it is a well-known fact that Tuborg tastes better than Carlsberg.

You could argue that Carlsberg owns Tuborg, but in common use Tuborg is the more popular of the two (among Danes).

Tuborg tastes better than Carlsberg?! It is cheaper, at least in the rest of Scandinavia, but I have to respectfully disagree.

I'd swap out the philosopher for Niels Bohr, he's more well-known and more important.

I wouldn't say he is more well known (at all). No reason to kick off Kierkegaard.

Was in Copenhagen a few years back; the statue in the harbor is not impressive -- I arrived just before the tour buses. After the buses, you couldn't see it. As for the autonomous neighborhood, my own neighborhood has better art and better (fully legal) pot. The amusement park like most of Scandinavia was overpriced. The beer and salmon however were well priced and amazing.

Haha.. I could have saved you some time and told you not to go see The Little Mermaid. But to be fair, it is called the LITTLE mermaid, but I guess foreigners still think they are going to see a big statue..

That is the cause for most tourist attractions everything is hyped up. If you expect to be blown away by they you might want to adjust your expectatons. Famous or iconic does not equal size or amazingness (yes it's a word :p).

But we'll there are plenty of pictures it is clear that it is just a regular small statue like there are loads of.
