Next to the water on a prime location gives you the chance to walk, run, have a picnic, take your dog for a stroll or just enjoy the views. A very unique star shaped fort that has a little for everybody. Even a windmill and beautiful swans.

This is a very nice park for a stroll. Despite its historical origins (which are hard to see since you are walking along its walls), this is a nice area which locals use to exercise. Enjoy some beautiful views of the city from the walls. This is very close to the statue of the little mermaid.

We came to the park early in the morning and it was a lovely walk. Very good place for a romantic break away or for a walk with the kids.

Perfect place for a sunday walk in nice weather. I've never seen grass this green before in my life. A very romantic spot, don't miss it.

Short walking distance from the Little Mermaid, and a quick escape from the hustle bustle of Copenhagen. This park is perfect for a morning run or just a simple stroll.

We visited early in the morning as we wanted to beat the crowds! It is a lovely walk through the park and a nice view down to the little mermaid. The base itself is also impressive.

The whole area has lovely gardens and is down by the water. Plenty to see. Restaurants and bars too. The army has their headquarters there and we were there for the 400 year celebrations. They had an Open Day, so we had a chance to wander around - it was like stepping back in time with the old buildings and... More

Kastellet makes for a very interesting walk. Walking on the rampart, you get a real idea of its star shape. It's just a really lovely place to take in the surrounding area and people watch, lots of joggers, dog walkers, etc. You are supposed to keep off the grass but the weird thing is there was an exhibition in a...

As we stopped to see what had happened, 2 women of... More

Best preserved STAR fortress and surrounded by a fantastic moat. Cool battle ramparts and neat uniforms. Too bad cannot see from air
