“Great place for a stroll.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Our family of five ventured over to the Citadel on our way back from the walk to the Little Mermaid statue. The area is really nice with the fountain and the park along the water to the statue. Just down from the church that is near the fountain you can find the entrance to the Citadel. Basically all we did was walk around it on the elevated pathway looking over the moat. There really wasn't too much to do but our kids (13, 11 and 10) just really liked the walk. The views are really pretty.

“Well Preserved”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

One of the most impressive and well preserved fortifications in Northern Europe is located in Copenhagen, Denmark. Kastellet, as it is called, has bastions at the corners and is designed in the form of a pentagram.
As you enter the Kastellet grounds, you will find a number of buildings including a windmill and a church. This historic site which also serves as a public park is frequented by locals and tourists in large numbers.

“Nice park”

Makes the walk to see the little Mermaid a little more enjoyable. Nice peaceful setting. There are several nice sights as you make your way around the park.

We went with the purpose of seeing the very famous Little Mermaid but and ended up walking around this Park. Beautiful park, awesome for a walk.

“Very peaceful”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely area for a quiet walk, great views and such a contrast to the area around the Little Mermaid. Very relaxing.
