This was our visit on our last morning and well worth the walk along the Waterfront from Nyhaven. The visit covered a number of different things: the Little Mermaid, over run with bus tour people many of whom thought they were the only ones there; the actual fortifications around the base which are accessible to the public and include many historic buildings and the Gefion Fountain. We were looking for the Resistance Museum, which would have been a highlight, but all we saw were the burnt out buildings where it had once been. We missed it by about a month. Some of the notices about the museum were still in the garden and these gave some idea of what had been there.

We walked the whole of the fortifications with gardens and moats, an old military barracks from the 1700's and a delightful windmill. Very close to the water and the mermaid. A delightful spot seemingly missed by the hordes of tours that park so close but yet, happily, so far from this idyll.

Although still an active military base you can walk all round the fortifications here, and it's definitely worth it. A very peaceful, relaxing place, it feels a million miles away from the touristy area of Nyhavn and the bustle of the centre. Lovely views (including to a warship and submarine across the water). Recommended.

Very special quiet place with interesting buildings (incl. small windmill and church with a model of a boat in it). It is very close to the Little Mermaid and much more interesting, so do not miss it.
