We stopped at this star fortress after visiting the Little Mermaid. We ended up being pleasantly surprised to have this be one of our favorite stops in Denmark. You can walk around the fortress and see the historic buildings, walk the path to see great...More

Not far from the statue of the little mermaid, this place was used to defend the city centuries ago. A nice place to walk around.

Go for a walk away from the Mermaid and you will come across some lovely sights of the city away from the 'crowds'. Discover other hidden gems and savour the space away from the centre.

It's not the highest priority in terms of things to see and do in Copenhagen but since we're here 8 nights we had plenty of time. It was quiet a walk from our hotel and we're sure feeling it in our legs today! There are...More

This fortification is still an active site. Being able to wander around and see how the fortification was set up and the views from the walls was well worth it.
