On my way to Copenhagen’s little mermaid I came across this wonderful place. An old fortress shaped like a pentagram. With moat and motte protecting the buildings on the inside. Must admit I wasn’t too interested in the historic significance, but was charmed by the looks of it and the walkway on top of the motte. The houses and gates were fine too, but mostly an excellent park to go for a stroll!
Like The Little Mermaid, Kastellet is located in Østerbro. A fairly long, but nice, walk from the city centre. Or you can do it the easy way and take advantage of public transportation.
