Your in Denmark, ofcourse you want to see a Windmill. Long walk around the pond to get to it though, but worth it all the same. We took our shoes off and just walked barefoot on the grass. The army barracks and lake around it, so beautiful. It's a great place to have a picnic. The photographs we took looked... More

The architecture is amazing typical Danish colourful buildings. The ramparts are wonderful to walk round but be careful of the joggers as there everywhere- not a problem as it just makes the place more alive. Lots of places to sit and rest. Toilets are clean.

while strolling the parks and taking in a sight every few minutes we saw the windmill in the trees on the bunker in Churchill Park. This is a great place to walk and tour the city near new harbor. The water way makes a lovely walking area and the trees offer shade on a hot day.

After a quick look at Strøget we went on to Nyhavn, with its colorful facades. Walking along the water, starting at Nyhavn and up towards Kastellet and Den lille havfrue (The little mermaid). It is a really nice walk and along the way there is much to see. Like the opera house on the opposite side of the water and... More

This star-shaped citadel is a lovely place, near the Little Mermaid and a number of other nice things to see.

" One of the best preserved star fortresses in Northern Europe". Definitely worth a visit after seeing the Little Mermaid. Very nice gardens too!

Great area for a walk alone or with someone. Or go here by bike. A nice green area close to city center and close to the 'mermaid'.

Interesting to see but don't make a special trip. We were walking through the park anyway so had a quick look.
