Whenever I'm in Copenhagen, I always make sure I go to the Kastellet. I just get this peaceful feeling when I walk there. It's very beautiful and the sights are amazing. Definitely a must see!

This park was absolutely stunning and also allowed you to walk though around an old military base. Our children loved checking out the cannons and the windmills.

This is a star-shaped fortress near the harbor. It dates back to 1662. Inside a many buildings including a windmill. This fortress has a long history as it was involved in many battles and wars. Now, it is a nice, peaceful place, good for walking.

Kastellet is free to enter for public. But be sure you keep the place clean quite so everyone can enjoy this building

Located right next to the famous little mermaid, this unique park is built around a small army base which is mostly open to the public. You can walk/run through the main street, or along the high ground path around the fort. Great views and a...More

We did not explore the fort itself, but we got lovely pictures of the Anglican church made of flint. Also worth seeing is the Gefion Fountain, which depicts the myth of the goddess carving the main island of Denmark out of Sweden. It really is...More

Strange to see Military Personnel strolling round the grounds. The walk to the Kastellet is very nice with the Moat/Lake all round. Didn't go up on the top of the mounds to walk round. The Memorial with the eternal flame was very moving to read...More
