Denmark was always in danger from the Swedes who were trying to over- power the country . I think they succeeded many times in the past and this fort was a part of the front for defense from the invaders. Its a grassed over area now and forms part of a really nice park where people jog , stroll and... More

I suppose this citadel would be better on a sunny day, but I didn't find it particularly interesting. It is impossible to see the star shape from the ground so it seems like you are just walking over random curves. If you're going to the Little Mermaid statue, you might as well walk through it, but don't expect to be... More

You can't beat the area of the castle grounds especially on the upper ramparts which give you a great view over the northern part of town and across to Nyholm. Take time to slip down to the English church and the Gefion Fountain which are spectacular. Take a picnic, or just take in the quiet ambience of this lovely place,... More

This historic 'fortress' is just behind the little mermaid and is a pleasant area to walk around . The church bells played the hymn for those in peril on the sea as we walked around - unusual ! Also a replica of trevi fountain at entrance and an old fashioned windmill in centre

This citadel was gorgeous to walk around in the freezing December temps. There are a lot of great photo opportunities. There isn't a lot of info about the citadel itself on the walk, so I wish I had read more about it before visiting.

Walking the old and refurbished defence line of Copenhagen is both historical and very peaceful. Weather you ar jogging, picnicking, strolling or playing with your kids, this si a great place to go. You never imagine how peaceful a military area can be.

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.
