Great to walk around walk and some good photo opportunities & a windmill!

Interesting walk around the banks of this site which is still in use with some great photo opportunities and an impressive windmill - worth an hour to wander around.

We were passing so went in, it is interesting to see the star shape and the barracks but wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

An amazingly preserved historic site, The Citadel (Kastellet), a star fortresses with bastions at its corners, was founded by Danish King Christian IV in 1626 and was just one of a ring of bastioned ramparts that encircled Copenhagen . Located within the compound are a church, windmill and buildings housing and serving the military. Great for a walk along the... More

We walked through this on our way to little mermaid. Nice area, and a memorial to WW2. There are some rules that one has to obey when entering the area.

A fantastic restrospective,with a character,allowing you to wonder around and see the militars and the way the still live. I lovely... More

We visited the Kastellet on the last full day of 5 day trip to Copenhagen. The Kastellet and entire area is full of history and it's of course advisable to learn about the importance of the Kastellet within Denmark's history. Even on a chilly Sunday in November, the whole area was buzzing with people and extremely pretty. Well worth a... More

A lovely place to have a wander around. These old barracks (although some are still in use) are just around the corner from the Little Mermaid. Walk along the top and find the windmill or wander around the barrack buildings themselves. Be warned though - there is no where here or nearby to get food or drinks!
