Long Description:
I gågaden i Roskilde står denne bænk udført i marmor og bronze af kunstneren Thor Larsen. Her kan man prøve lykkens galocher. Efterladt på bænken er H.C.Andersens taske, stok og hat.
Prøv galocherne og fortæl om du blev lykligere.

Lykkens Galocher er et eventyr skrevet af H.C.Andersen.
I eventyret kommer Lykkens Fe med et par Galocher til menneskenes verden. Hvis man tager galocherne på kan man ønske sig til en anden tid og til et andet sted. Lykkens Fe siger at de vil bringe mere lykke til verden. Sorgens Fe betvivler dette. Igennem eventyret følger man forskellige mennesker der prøver galocherne. Ingen af dem finder lykke og alle vælger at stille dem væk igen.





In the pedestrian street in Roskilde is this bench made of marble and bronze by the artist Thor Larsen. Here you can try the goloshes of happiness. Left on the bench is H.C. Andersen's cane, hat and bag.
Try the goloshes and tell if you became happier.

The goloshes of fortune is a fairytale written by H.C.Andersen.
In the fairytale, the fairy of happiness brings a pair of goloshes to the human world. If you wear these goloshes, you can wish for any place and anytime. The fairy of happiness says they will bring more happiness to the world. The fairy of sorrow, however, doubts this. Throughout the fairytale, you follow several different people who find and put on the galoshes.
