Kastellet - Review

Kastellet is one of the most well-preserved star shaped forts in Northern Europe. It is developed in the type of a pentagram with bastions at its corners. Kastellet has been designed with the ring of bastioned bulwarks which used to enclose Copenhagen. Today, only the defenses of Christianshavn remain today.

Various edifices are placed inside the grounds of Kastellet, incorporating a chapel in addition to a windmill. The fort houses different military exercises yet it primarily serves as an open park and a notable site. The Citadel has two entryways, King's Gate on the south side, confronting the city, and Norway Gate on the north side of the structure. Both of these gates date from 1663 as a major aspect of Ruise's unique fortification.

The fort premises are extremely beautiful with gardens and resting areas. The star shaped pattern makes for excellent areal photographs.

Kastellet, Copenhagen Reviews

  • The whole place was absolutely stunning. We could see the local population making good use of the area for jogging, dog walking and keeping fit. We ourselves walked a fair amount around this place as we discovered the colourful buildings along with a windmill on this ground. Close to the little mermaid. No entry fee applicable. Must see. Highly recommended.

  • My best place in Copenhagen. Really quiet, windy, great view and castle architectures, it's like an old beautiful natural village with gorgeous green grass. A superb place for relaxing and take a picture. If you want to reach little mermaid by walking from Nyhavn, take your time to reach it through here, you can rest and enjoy the view before continue to the statue. Highly recommended!

  • Loved the tranquil feel about the whole place. No entry fees so was open for everyone from tourists to locals wanting to have a nice stroll. Would highly recommend going through Kastellet if you're on your way to see the little mermaid.

  • I was pleasantly surprised at Kastellet - I mostly wanted to visit because it looks cool on the map, I didn't even realize that it's an active military installation, so it's very well preserved. Beautiful buildings and the walk along the ramparts is gorgeous and there are many benches to stop and enjoy the views.

  • Stunning place - yet another great outdoors area in Copenhagen. Wished I brought my running shoes with me as it looked like the perfect place for a run.
