It won’t take you long to wander around, but the setting is lovely. I walked the perimeter, which took probably 30 minutes.

This Citadel served as Copenhagen's main fortress into the 18th century and was used during WWII as the German headquarters during their occupation. Today it has peaceful walking paths and welcomes joggers and strollers to this still-operative military structure.

Sorry for the late reply. it is an active military base so you can't enter any buildings. We spent about a half hour there and did a pretty thorough job. We are not infirm but far from young.
