This fort it’s located in downtown, around 10 minutes by taxi from the harbour. When we arrived was closed but we took some pictures. And one crazy thing: you will see chickens around the fort and others streets but I don’t know why.

Newly restored, a spot to add to your must see list. You can wander the various rooms and cells on your own, but having a tour guide would be a definite benefit to learn the history of the structure and the important role it played...More

It's mostly empty. It used to be a prison. The architecture is interesting (very thick concrete walls) and the view from the top is good.

When we first walked into the fort we were a little underwhelmed. We spent the first 10 minutes just looking around the fort to the left. There is little signage in the fort and so its hard to get any real information from just looking...More

We arrived at 3 and they would not let us in. The fort looks cool but make sure you go early otherwise you can not get in.

This fort was not open when we had been here before. The renovation continues but is still worth a gander. It is not free and not cheap to get in. They are still paying for the work. Very similar but smaller than the Danish Forts...More
