Lonely Planet review

The star-shaped fortress of Kastellet was originally commmissioned by Frederik III in 1662. Today it is one of the most historically evocative sites in the city. Its grassy ramparts and moat surround some beautiful 18th-century barracks, a chapel (sometimes used for concerts) and a tiny lifeguards museum (by the southern gate). On the ramparts is a historic windmill and some excellent views to the Little Mermaid, the harbour and, in the other direction, Marmorkirken.
