About
Travel 100 years into the past, to a time when world war raged around Denmark. Explore the many surprising stores and immerse yourself in an era where Denmark is on the brink of war. Denmark must fight for its neutrality and avoid being drawn into the war. It is a time of trench digging, mine laying and great umanitarian efforts. The Danish welfare state is born as politicians intervene to keep the people united, while profiteers make a fortune off the war.

A coastal fort build in the years before and during the First World War, to protect the Bay of Køge from a possible German naval invasions. Now a days it is a protected area with a museum, grassy fields for recreation, a restaurant and a lovely sandy beach.
The construction began back in 1913 and was ready to be used in June 1916 and abandoned in 1932. In a short period from 1939 it was re-manned until the Germans captured it in 1940 and used it as an observations post as well as a prison camp. When Denmark was in 1945, the Danish government used it for a short period for the same purpose as the Germans had done.
In 2010 the municipality began to restore the old fort and officially opened by Prince Joachim August 6th 2014.
Originally the battery was dubbed "Mosede Battery" popularly called Mosede Fort.
We have visit the site many times during the last 30 years and from time to time had the opportunity to step inside the casemate and see and feel the humidity and the decay. It is fantastic what there has happened after the restoration. Very nice and well done. We can highly recommend a visit and travel 100 years back and explore the new museum and experience the life in Denmark during World War 1. There is a free daily introduction to the exhibition at 12 o'clock

The fort was part of the WW1 defense line across Zealand. It is well preserved with lots of information and interactive displays. My kids was very impressed with the museum and like to come back. There easy access by car or train nearby (10 min walk). There's a nice park and beach surrounding the fort. I recommend it to all ages.

You might think a visit to a fort that never fired a shot in anger would be pointless; but this is far from the case. This tell the story of Denmark in the Great War in all aspects- social, political, and military. The staff are helpful and informative, plus you get great views from the fortifications. Highly recommended.

We stopped here just coincidentally. Didn't actually visit inside the museum so cannot say how much more there would be - and that's way the rating is not better. But if you're intersted in history and nature / nice view to ocean, then is worth to stop by.

Do the tour and then walk around afterwards and study deeper. This is a great place to learn more about Denmark during Wolrd War 1.

I was pleasantly surpriced to see that there is a lot about civilian life during the war and after.

We visited here on our way to Roskilde. Such a very interesting and well presented Fort. The story is based on WW1 and is made up of displays with interactive portions. You can go into the rooms and the old telephone will ring. You answer it and it will be a person reporting an incident about the war that related to the subject of that room. We were please that we were given a guide in English and that there was an option on the phone to listen in English as well. Make sure you go into the Dark Room.
Good for bad weather day as most items are inside the building of the Fort

Took the family on a 'rainy Sunday' outing to the fort. It lies on the coast at the South end of the Victorian era defences protecting Copenhagen. Having visited Ejby Bunker Museum, which details the construction of the defences, and the roll of the Bunker during the cold war, we were keen to find out what lay at the other end. It is not a large museum but it is very good. It, like Ejby Bunker, makes excellent use of different technologies to highlight key stories and guide the visitor to the defences, and their context. Every display in in Danish, English and German, the use of technology is very well measured, and it only enhances the visit. We all enjoyed it (2 parents, a ten year old and a 4 year old), and plan to return next summer to enjoy the coastline around the museum.

Part of the WW1 defence and a bygone way of warfare. Canons and trenches. Very well kept - with lots of interesting information. Good parking, toilets and a beautiful sorrounding. Excellent for a picknick or a meal at the restaurant. Great spot for seatroutfishing as well.

I was visiting for work with two 10-year-old boys. What an experience, a museum where you can see and feel history, where there are tasks children can do and uniforms they can try on.
There are 3D glasses where children and adults get a picture of what it was like to be on the Western Front.
There were two young people at work, one sold tickets, but could also tell about the First World War, at the fort's entrance was the next one, who also knew many stories and was a lively and skilled communicator. It is top class for children to meet such skilled communicators
