Much better attraction than nearby Little Mermaid

Even on a dreary February day the bright red buildings of this still-active military area provided some great Nordic scenery. A great place for a walk in all seasons.

This is a gorgeous elevated walk, surrounded by water and with views of the city and the sea. The military barracks are on the inside of the elevated walkways and are housed in beautiful old buildings. We visited in winter sunshine with snow on the ground and it was beautiful.

Don't expect too much... this is not impressive ramparts, big cannons and high turrets. However it was a pleasant walk with some nice views- including the moat, church and lovely windmill. I'd say it's worth a wander on the way to say a brief (and chilly!) 'hi' to the Little Mermaid!

There is a zone close to a some lakes that were frozen the time we were there in January. There are more fields and in some moments believe being in the countryside.

It's a nice spot for a stroll and a little bit of history. Worth swinging by in conjunction with checking out the Gefion Fountain and Little Mermaid if you're interested in seeing either of those. Sadly the view from overheard is the most visually stunning so it doesn't get the 5 stars I reserve for "must see" places, but assuming... More

If you are desperate to walk on something other than cobblestones or concrete and get away from central Copenhagen, this is an easy walking distance from the centre. In addition, the Little Mermaid is immediately next to the park so can include both sites.

There's so much to see in the area from all the buildings and statues within the area to st.albans church as the closeness to "The little mermaid". Also a view towards the opera house.

Enjoy this place after work as the view is so relaxing. Even a good place for jogging and picnic during summer.
