I love this star-shaped fort. It's free and it's a great place to relax. I suggest taking a lovely walking tour, starting at Nyhavn, past the Royal Place, along to the English Church, through the fort and ending up at the Little Mermaid.

It's a nice area to feel outside of the city atmosphere and walk on the paths. There is a church, the windmill, and more to see while walking or jogging. It's a good area to check out on a walk to or from the Little Mermaid statue.

Kastellet is a lovely place for a nice stroll, and I saw many joggers around, and thought to myself that it would be a nice place to do one's morning exercise routine. There is not much to see, but it is a lovely place nonentheless. Great for those who love photography and nature. It's close to The Little Mermaid.

My wife and I spend thirty minutes strolling around the grounds. We could have stayed longer, but there was much else to see (including the Little Mermaid that is right next door). Good place to take pictures.

Walking through the buildings and on the walls round the Kastellet (Citadelle / Fort) is a very simple pleasure. It is well looked after and once you have dodged the joggers on the ramparts you get a great impression of what it has been like for the last 200 years. For real contrast build it into your visit to the... More

We walked round the beautiful Kastellet gardens located in an moated old fort (still it seems used as a military training centre). A well maintained and attractive location considerably enhanced by the spectacularly sunny day occurring when we visited. Delightful, picturesque and well managed. Also relatively close to the Royal Palace, Little Mermaid Statue and City Centre. Pick a nice... More

Thus is certainly a place I'd recommend in good weather. A lovely walking or jogging park. Lots of photo opportunities. Then there are the buildings. The working barracks from a couple of centuries back. St Albans church. Fountain. Windmill. If I came back I'd definitely spend more time here.

To be fair I was unable to explore properly and make a complete judgement as the weather was poor but I saw enough to see that it would be a nice place to investigate in better weather.

Kastellet (or "the citadel") is my go-to place in Copenhagen if I want to take a stroll through on the ramparts or beside the old red houses of stone. When I walk around the old citadel, I get the sensation of bygone times and the beautiful windmill and the canons lead my thoughts towards Denmark in the days of the... More
