Photographer's Note

Copenhagen City Hall Clocktower and a column with 2 'lur' players. I've loaded a workshop as they cannot be seen clearly from this angle.

"The Lur Blowers (Danish: Lurblæserne) is a monument located next to City Hall in Copenhagen, Denmark, consisting of a bronze sculpture of two lur players mounted on top of a tall terracotta column."

It's sometimes spelt in English as 'lure' but that word has another meaning in English akin to entrap. As in a fish lure. The column is 20 metres tall.

Note also that Copenhagen is often spelt with K rather than a C if purchasing train tickets in Germany or Poland, eg. I went through all of the ticketing machine 'c's three times before it dawned on me.
