Kastellet (transl. The Citadel) located in Copenhagen, Denmark, is one of the best preserved fortresses in Northern Europe. It is constructed in the form of a pentagon with bastions at its corners. Kastellet was continuous with the ring of bastioned ramparts which used to encircle Copenhagen but of which only the ramparts of Christianshavn remain today.

This fortress is a very beautiful place. The grounds are open to the public to walk around. Do not miss a walk on the Ramparts, the path are very beautiful and nice. It is a good place for a jog. Do not be alarm by armed soldiers patrolling the ground. The commander house is very beautiful too.
It is a very wel preserved star fortress and provides a nice place take a walk on an take in the views from the earthworks. But just beware that it is an active military base and soldiers might shoo you away if you stray into arear you should not be, which are a bit hard to make out due the lack of signs.
Interesting layout and design, with lots of history. Not sure if because we were here too early or in the dead of Winter but there was absolutely nothing going on.
Must see. Ideal place to escape the city's dynamic environment. The area is green, very clean and nice to have a walk and calm down.
Good as starting point for a walk accross waterfront or other places in the middle of Copenhagen. Not much attractions, but interesting landscape. At least pass it by.
A historical place in the heart of Copenhagen. Do not miss strolling inside and around the walls of this old fortress. Nature history and pleasure are combined all together. Just a few minutes far from the Mermaid statue. You can also walk on the walls and enjoy the majestic view. Keep your eyes open since some interesting birds might nest around there
We see lots of people walk and run around the pentagram moat. Seems like a residential area now. Calm and nice place to be. There is also a pretty windmill at one of the corners.
Nice place to walk around it and discover the four sides . No activities there never At least a place to get coffee 😅
The whole Kastellet fortification is an architect's jewel. Its design with the moat and the bastions immediately brings you back to a different time with a clear smell of cannon powder. For an active military base, the whole complex is extremely laid back, and it is just beautiful to wander around. The memorial in the north-eastern part of Kastellet, however, brings you back to the grim reality of war, with the names of Danish soldiers fallen around the world (mostly on supposed peace-keeping mission) since the end of World War II.
Beautiful park in Copenhagen with bike and pedestrian tralis. It's the site of an earthen fortress, since Copenhagen doesn't have a lot of rocks it's made of mounted earth. Lots of benches, and foliage to enjoy. You'll see a windmill and a ww1 memorial. Monet like scenes along the watery mote. It's a great Park to have a picnic in especially on those long summer days. This part of town feels very safe. From kastellet you can walk to The Little Mermaid.
The Kastellet is a fortification built during the reign of Christian IV of Denmark begun in 1626. Its shape, a five-pointed star surrounded by water on all sides, gives it even more charm and it is today one of the most preserved fortifications in Europe .
Beautiful place. Gefion fountain near the harbor next to Kastellet. Opened in 1908. You can get there by cycle. One of the must see place in Copenhagen.
This five pointed fortress, surrounded by a moat, is a well preserved fortification that is still an active modern military establishment. Despite this, walking around the grounds and the path along the walls is allowed to the public. No cycling on the walls or walking on the lawns.
A quiet little military base in the city. Not a whole lot to see. It’s a nice place to have a picnic on the grass.
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.
