Gefion Fountain (Gefionspringvandet)
The Gefion Fountain is in Churchillparken, at the end of Amaliegade. From the fountain, you have a magnificent view down to the square at Amalienborg
. The sculpture is situated next to the lovely natural area of Kastellet
. The huge, dynamic sculpture, revealed in 1908, was created by Anders Bundgård. In this sculpture it is Gefion, the energetic Norse goddess, who swings her whip over her sons. The backs of the oxen swell under the strain and water sprays up from behind the wheels and the plow. The water coming out of the nostrils of the oxen emphasizes the dramatic action and the power and strength the oxen put into their work.
