A tranquil spot of green in the midst of a business area. The water body and the birds in the greens were really soothing. The place is also picturesque and a good addition to your album.

Well preserved fortress in the north part of Copenhagen. Very interesting buildings, fortifications and memorials. Great views of the city and water from the star shaped earthen fortifications.

Kastellet is a star-shaped fort surrounded by a deep, water-filled moat and with very steep ramparts. It has been a Danish defensive site for centuries and even today at its centre it hosts various working military buildings and a parade ground. The setting is very pleasant and serene, especially up on the grassy ramparts, which are an excellent spot to... More

It is a peaceful park, reached late, it was almost dark. Chilly in the evening, could not find enough in the evening, crowd present seemed not friendly.

This is a nice and sizeable park that you will likely walk through to get to the Little Mermaid. Good thing it's pretty, because the walk isn't short. It was chilly, as it was April, but we still went back on another, sunnier day to enjoy a picnic by one of the canals.

Situated just a few minutes walk from the Little Mermaid this green oasis is the perfect place to escape the hordes of tourists. The fort itself consists of rows of accommodation buildings and a parade ground but it is the park surrounding it that is impressive with its shady trees, a beautiful old windmill and a moat. This a lovely... More

The library inside kastellet is open to members of the public. There is a great variety of military books to read. Take note the Danish equivalent of MI6 is directly opposite the library entrance and on sunny days you may find the odd school girl waiting on their doorstep hoping to live out a Hollywood fantasy. The ladies inside the... More

You can easily spend half an hour walking around the green park like area and look at the old buildings of the former military site. I was looking for a place to sit down and have a drink but could not find one. But the mix of trees and water is still worth spending a bit of time.

...architecture in Nordic style, clear structures and despite it's former martial background a lovely place to walk around. Combine it with visiting the nearby Little Mermaid and you have seen already two of the places to be in Copenhagen.
