The park is beautiful all times of the year and is littered with fantastic little brightly coloured old barracks, bridges, canals, and plants. It's also right next to The Little Mermaid & Gefion Fountain.

The Kastellet is one of my favorite spots of Copenhagen. It's quiet, it's the perfect place to walk around and to talk. remember to go up the hill to see the mill!

There is not much to see at the fort, but the walk around the location is quite nice. The island is star shaped which is rather unusal. The wind mill is well maintained.

I think our visit was slightly coloured by the fact that our extremities were slowly freezing off but can imaging this would be a very good place to visit when a bit warmer. Having said that, we were a bit surprised that there was so little information on view. Just adjacent is the mobbed Little Mermaid - obviously a must... More

Walking through this place, it won't make sense to you unless you read about it in the books first and we brought our guide book so we read through it and then walked through this fortress. This fortress is shaped of a star, so you can walk in many different directions and you can see beautiful lakes, ponds, windmills and... More

it is a star shaped stronghold, not really a castle as you imagine, but still a great place to visit, for a nice walk.

This old star shaped fort has been preserved and is still in use by the Danish Army. You can walk all around the ramparts and through the fort which has barrack buildings and other facilities that are still in use.

There is not a lot to see, but it is worth a stroll round the ramparts-there are benches to sit on whilst looking at the views. I was amazed by the neatness of the grass, especially given the grass covers some quite steep slopes. It adds to the military atmosphere. And no you cannot sit on the grass. And yes... More
