Such a lovely early morning walk through the gardens. The way the sunlight hits the frozen water it simply stunning. You don't need to spend much time here but would thoroughly recommend even if it is just part of your trip itinerary to see the little mermaid.

Very little to see here and no information boards. Keep off the grass signs everywhere but there is a path all the way around, up on the ramparts, which makes for a very pleasant walk. My Lonely Planet guidebook says there are excellent views of The Little Mermaid. That must be if you have your telescope with you and even... More

Nice shaped fort, decent views of the river. Not a whole lot to do otherwise, but we stopped by while cycling around Copenhagen.

Kastelet rebuild by the Dutch engineer Rűse and seems everlasting due to the way it's build. Still military, but open for public as a park to have a nice walk. We had a meeting in one of the formal storehouses with nice lunch and some fingerfood. Short walk from hotel Babette Guldsmeden

Kastellet is a truly beautiful green area near The Little Mermaid. Here you can find an old Mill and a cute little church surrounded by nature. I would recommend dropping by to anyone, it certainly was the highlight of my trip and quite a surprise for me because I came across this area without knowing of it.

I really enjoyed walking around the Kastellet. The buildings are pretty and on a beautiful sunny day, you could really enjoy a nice stroll around the area.. There are activities throughout the year so plan ahead.

We had amazing weather while visiting Kastellet! There were not a lot of people, because the hour was quite early. I liked the contrast between the military houses and scenic green grass and cute bridges. We were short on time, so just walked through and not around, there was also a nice church and fountain in the nearby to take... More

I would combine kastellet with the little mermaid, Gefionspringvandet, St. Albans Church. A great tour is to start at Skuespillerhuset which will allow you to have view of the Operahouse. Walk along the seafront past the old buildings, and the Quens Palace. Walk to Gefionspringvandet, and St. Albans Church. Buy a coffee at the nearby coffeeshop and walk around Kastellet... More

This was on our way from seeing the little mermaid it is close by and a nice place to visit. There are also houses that soldiers used to live and it is a nice stop when you have time to explore the town and some time to kill.

Being interested in military and its history, going to the Kastellet, you get to walk around the barracks and up on the rampart which is a lovely view and good fresh sea air. It's a good mile around and is utilised by local joggers and parents with their children in pushchairs as the air is nice and fresh.
