Kærlighedsøen Copenhagen – Lovers Island

"Kærlighedsøen" is a beautiful sculpture in Copenhagen's Ørestad, a granite pillar ornamented with female bodies over which water constantly flows down...

If you happen to look out the window on your right, while on your way to The Blue Planet by metro, your gaze may fall upon a strange and colorful sculpture that seems a little out of place standing there in the middle of nowhere.

Get of at the next stop (Bella Center Station) and walk back a little by Ørestads Boulevard. You can always go look at fish some other time.

A concrete bridge leads you to the island itself, and in the middle there is a granite pillar ornamented with female bodies over which water constantly flows down. Around the column, there are four pavilions with roofs of colored glass. It's perfectly beautiful in daylight but I recommend you go see it in the evening when the lights are on.

The entire thing is created by the same man who is behind Nørrebros Heart, the artist Bjørn Nørgaard

The area behind Lovers Island is part of Amager Fælled, a nature reserve, and that somehow adds to the experience, realizing that you are standing in the city and in the middle of nature at the same time.
