We liked this area

This is a pleasant place to walk and relax. It is close to the Little Mermaid and in my opinion offers much more.

Beautiful! It’s close to the little mermaid so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t visit Kastellet. It’s a star fortress where nowadays locals use to do their jogging. There’s also a lovely windmill there. Great to walk around.

One of the reasons Danes are as they are comes from the wars in the end of the 18th century. This has a time of big chances for Denmark. This area is a landmark from these very important times.

A great park to visit and easily accessible from Østerport Station. It is a functional military site and you can see the soldiers. There is a lovely windmill on the island and the famous mermaid statue is nearby.

Once you pass the famous "Little Mermaid", Kastellet is ahead to the right, originally a barracks, it is still lived in today. Very peaceful grounds to wander in and if time picnic.

The Kastellet (citadel) is a beautiful star shaped fort on the waterfront not too far from the Little Mermaid Statue. There is a lovely Windmill on the grounds. You can walk, jog, or ride a bike through the fort. The parks and water around the Fort is beautiful. A nice quiet diversion from the hustle and bustle.

Beautiful star shaped shaped fortress, tucked in the middle of a public park. Peaceful, with some amazing architecture. It's on your way to the Little Mermaid (but much better). Enjoy.

The citadel (Kastellet) is an active base and looked to be mostly living quarters plus interesting places for wedding ceremonies. Tucked away in the direction of the little Mermaid -- be sure to find the eternal flame in the Monument for Denmark’s International Effort since 1948. Particularly moving is the list of Danish men who have given their lives in... More
