Many knows Kastellet in
Copenhagen (The Citadel) as a beautiful green area in Copenhagen, but it is
much more than that.
The Citadel in
Copenhagen is an attraction for locals, tourists, and the Danish Defense Forces’
workplace. The Citadel is one of the best-preserved fortresses in Northern
Europe and is one of the Defense Forces’ most characteristic buildings, as
Kastellet is formed as a five bastions star.
The Citadel was built
in 1626 by Christian IV and later developed by Frederik III. At Kastellet, the Johan
Friedrich Struense sat in jail for betraying the King, for having an affair
with the Queen Carolie Mathilde.
Today, the Citadel is
many things, workplace, museum, military community, and a tourist attraction.
Kastellet is popular for walking and running, and is truly beautiful. The
ramparts give a lovely view of the rest of the Citadel’s areas.
One important not is
that the Citadel ends where the famous walk on Langelinie begins and lead out
to The Little Mermaid.
