A quirky star-shaped design really adds to this beautiful parkland and the varied monuments and buildings dotted about make it well worth a visit. There’s a windmill, some typically Scandinavian houses, and an affecting war memorial, among others. And all free.

Beautiful grounds, a lovely walk, the windmill, cobblestone walkways. Close to my family members apartment so, a nice walk with the dog.

We passed by this place while on the hop on/hop off bus, then came back to walk through the Kastellet. The grounds were beautiful and the interpretive signage helped us understand what was going on. It was quite different to go to a military installation...More

Good place to take a walk. Some might be challenging with a pram but with two people it's more than doable.

Discovered by mistake on our road to another spot, this place is a must see, being placed 5 minutes to Little Mermaid.

Maybe it is a place to promenade. I made mine into a homage to Monet and Giverny. See the attached photo of the lily’s and algae and slime floating and decorating the moat.

This historic fortress is within walking distance of the main city sights. There are some beautiful barracks from the 18th century and a windmill on the surrounding rampart. There are good views towards the harbour from the grassy rampant.

A large fort, still used by the military quite close to the little mermaid. Free to enter. Rather a peaceful and pleasant place to walk around on the way back to the centre.

The buildings are still occupied by services personnel but none were visible on my visit. There cannot be many Kastallets which are in such good order.Enjoyable but not a "Wow". Nevertheless a peaceful place to visit and entirely free.

Thank Richard R
