The walk around the Citadel is pleasant and full of history. The keep and the church are easy to access if you are coming from visiting the Little Mermaid, and it makes for a welcome respite from the crowds there. One can make several circuits...More

Some beautiful buildings and nice grounds - worth a visit if you are in the area but I maybe wouldn't make a special trip for it. Lots of more impressive places in Copenhagen

for a nice walk, change of guard at noon, the church is worth a look, recommended before going and greeting the Little Mermaid which is the same area

The Kastellet was on our "maybe" list when we visited Copenhagen. We had some extra time one morning so decided to visit. I am so happy we did! It was a deeply pleasant walk. Well worth a visit.

This windmill dominates the skyline so it is a pleasant walk if you aim for it as this park is very open with many paths. On the edge of the park lies the castle and museum, well worth a visit!!

I live in Copenhagen but it’s not everyday I get to Explore my own city. Kastellet is definitely worth visiting to go for a walk. Amazing surroundings.

On a nice day really nice to wander around the pointed star shape. Also if you are visiting the little mermaid definitely go round as right next door. Great views across the harbour and very well kept grounds

It is a pretty place to look around and a good place to get a touristy photo next to the massive flag.

Located just a little bit outside Copenhagen, by bus it is in Osterbro, a great place to visit and walk around and then make your way over to the Little Mermaid.

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.
