Beautiful and historical area. Very nice for a visit in combination with a walk along the harbor, combining the opera, the little mermaid w.m.

This pentagram shaped fortress was built as a protection against those nasty Swedes but the last time it was needed was in 1807 against the English. Today, it offers a nice place for a stroll. You can walk along the grassy perimeter on a nicely maintained path overlooking the fort, the moat and the water. Very scenic. While the fort... More

My hotel was quite close to this attraction so I was able to walk in and around the area several times. It was lovely to stroll along the grounds, and the area is perfect for jogging/walking or sight seeing.

Came here a couple of times during my stay, it's a really beautiful park with ponds and trees and an old fortress in the middle of it. Very nice and quiet amidst the harbour and the busy streets surrounding it.

Very nice place to visit. There are so egreat views from the top ofthe surrounding wall, as well as walking inside was nice. There are some beautiful green paths to it. On the southern and western parts of the fortress.

Just beside the Little Mermaid and Geflion fountain, this is basically an Army Fortress with an embankment to walk around. Concerts staged in the main square if you're lucky enough to catch one. Honestly I wouldn't go out of my way for this but as I said it is right beside the Mermaid so if thats too busy you could... More

Headed to Kastellet after the disappointing Mermaid. Free to get in, and a really nice walk round the ramparts. Not busy and with some good views in all directions.

This is absolutely a place worth visiting. It is a quiet place - a perfect place remembring the fallen Danish soldiers after WW II. Follow the Citadelle along the path around - excelllent kept for centuries. Overviewing the Copenhagen Harbour - with the British and Swedish churches and close to the Queen's castle Amalienborg. Nice pub outside for a great... More

Really, really nice place to walk on a summer's evening with very few people. The ramparts seem to be favoured by runners. There were parts of the walk when we were the only people around.

Right next to the mermaid, this is much more peaceful. You can walk through the barracks or around the walls where there are great views. It is free to enter.
