One of northern Europe's largest sand sculpture events, the Copenhagen International Sand Sculpture festival takes place on Ofelia beach located in the city centre.
The theme of the 2013 edition of the festival is "Myths and Legends". The popular annual event attracts some of the world's most prolific sand artists whose work draws large crowds.
The Ofelia beach is part of the Royal Danish Theatre's outdoor stage and lounge area on Kvæsthusmolen.
It is surrounded by the port on three sides as well as the Royal Palace Amalienborg, the Royal Playhouse and the Opera House.
