The Kastellet it isn't nothing of special, but the area arohnd it it's a good place to walk and to be out of the city life. Kastellet is placed close to the sea, in the middle of a small island. Close to it you can find a nice church to visit and the famous Little Mermaid !

We got off the Grand Canal Tour at The Little Mermaid (having already been all the way round on the boat once), from which it is a short walk to Kastellet. There isn't a great deal to see, but in late April on a day with clear blue skies, the area was absolutely gorgeous. The many cherry trees were in... More

It was a pleasant walk from Amalienborg to Kastellet however I wouldn't make a special trip to see it. Inside are the barracks and a memorial to fallen soldiers. Not much to see.

The windmill was being repaired when we visited, so it was covered in scaffolding and mesh, but the entire area is very beautiful and peaceful, and I recommend visiting this park for a nice stroll and/or picnic. There are several different structures/buildings to see there, and it's lovely.

You can visit citadel after or before the Little Mermaid, but if you don't have time do not go. The building and the surrounding area are beautiful, but do not expect so many things.

We followed the route of the Little Mermaid and finally saw this place. As soon as we passed the bridge and got into the area, you will feel the peacefull atmosphere here after seeing so many people around the little mermaid. It's quite big when you walk around. The buildings inside this fort are colourfull. There is an old windmill... More

This is a very interesting and uniquely shaped place. I am surprised it is not that well known. I spent some time walking around the barracks and admiring the views. The mermaid statue is also close by.

My partner and I went on a run through this part of town, with a small pit stop to see the little mermaid statue. The Kastellet was by far a highlight of our trip. We loved running on top of the ramparts and the sights from the top were great. You have to visit this, I would say more than... More
