We enjoyed our walk through here on the way back to our cruise ship from the city. Would have spent longer here if the rain hadn't started! Pleasant to walk around the ramparts inside the moat. Close to the Little Mermaid statue if you are in this area.

Enjoyable late afternoon stroll; quiet location and great opportunity to just sit in the sun and relax. Well manicured grounds and cared-for buildings.

This provides an attractive detour as you walk towards the little mermaid. The buildings are all in good condition and the grass is well maintained. Worth walking through.

You need to give yourself time to really explore this area as it covers a large area. If you are short of time at least stop at the entrance to check out the large sculpture and church as they are very photogenic.

We took a leisurely stroll round here after viewing the mermaid. This was much more impressive. Over 300 years old, and with its own windmill, it was tranquil to walk around the star shaped ramparts, and the walk through the central street was interesting also. Very nice.

Nice calm and quite place in walking distance from the central station.. Nice old buildings and a pond..there is a nice old church as well out side the water canal. But there is no way you can see it the way in pictures like a star from higher ground as there is no view point sort of thing ! Good... More

We happened across the Citadel after we visited the Little Mermaid. It was a pleasant surprise! We enjoyed a nice walk around the jogging path and were able to take pictures of the wonderful windmill. It makes sense to combine a visit to the harbor with a stroll around the Citadel. Enjoy!

If you're walking along the habor by The Little Mermaid, be sure to stop by the Citadel historical site. Walk along the battlements and enjoy the view. Please remember to observe complete silence at the memorial for fallen soldiers of international missions and the eternal flame at the north end of the Citadel.

Just a short distance from the Design Museum, you step into the peaceful citadel with its colorful buildings. Close to the Little Mermaid but a moat away, it is pleasant to walk around the buildings, moats and embankments.
