“A trip back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

After visiting the ' Mermaid ' we walked through the fort. Its a splendid example of the type of fortification seen throughout Europe in the 17th century an attempt to counter development of artillery. Despite its origins it has now become a peaceful walk back in time, across the moat and through the ancient gate to a self contained community of houses, a windmill and preserved cannons, exiting through the far gate back into the town. Its free and worth a look.

“A surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

A pleasant, nice walk to catch nice scenery and surprises after visiting the Little Mermaid. Like most were already said, one get to see military barracks and offices, canons, windmill and etc. Personally, it's worth a visit.

“Combine with a visit to the Little Mermaid”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

I came to this area to see the Little mermaid, and had a bit of time to kill before the next boat came (did a hop-on hop-off harbour cruise).

Not much inside the fort, but a walk around the crownwork is nice and green and provides some nice views.

You can probably miss it if you don't have much time though.

“Kastellet - Citadel - for all seasons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

All seasons are beautiful here - in summer you can enjoy thousands of flowers and rest on one of the benches. See the magnific fountain Gefion - from Nortic mythology. In spring 100 Chinese cherry trees are in bloom and in winter you can enjoy the tranquility and views of the frozen waters. Beautiful and perfect for at stroll.
