In København you ride a bike. If you don't have one, hire. A bike is mandatory, otherwise you'll never get the spirit of the town. In some particular places, like the ramparts of the Kastellet (or cemeteries) you are asked to push your bike, not...More

The walk on the Kastellat trail was one of my favourite strolls in Copenhagen. Luckily it was not crowded and I got to see one of those old European windmills. Definitely would recommend visiting Kastellat to just see the beauty of a fortress and try...More

Our hotel was nearby to the Kastellet and so we ventured out on a warm afternoon for a walk up the waterfront. It is near to the Little Mermaid but is actually quiet and peaceful and seemed to be full of people jogging or walking...More

Star shaped fort with an old windmill. The fort is still a military base although this isn't really obvious. The fort is right next to The Little Mermaid so is well worth spending some time here. It's a lovely place for a wander.

We didn't really spot this and came across it by accident after visiting the Mermaid. It's actually a really nice walk, high up on ancient earth battlements with decent views.

It's worth visiting and going for a walk around the (start) perimeter wall. The wall has a relatively high elevation, so you get a nice view of the surrounding area. Not much to do there, but the buildings are pretty and history interesting.

The whole Kastellet fortification is an architect's jewel. Its design with the moat and the bastions immediately brings you back to a different time with a clear smell of cannon powder. For an active military base, the whole complex is extremely laid back, and it...More

This lovely area is just east of Copenhagen centre and near the famous Mermaid sculpture. It is an active military base and yet when you walk around the site you are not aware of this fact. It is very well kept and also the walking...More

Apparently here is where all the locals do their outdoor exercise. A nice place close to the little mermaid.

Just a cute windmill with cannons around it, but the path there is interesting. It's at the top of a star-shaped path that you can only access by going down from the street, through the red barracks and back up the path behind one of...More
