Time for another part from Copenhagen - this time Kastellet the old fortification from 1626

Back in the day moat based defenses surrounded the entire city, but as time went and the city grew it has now ended up in the center of town more or less..
Personally I hold the place very dear as I used to work there while in the military, as the place is not only historic but a very active part of the Danish military and home to the Military Intelligence, the Chief of Defence and various brances of the Home Defence among other things
To most however it works as one of the city's best parks doing the daytime, so let's take a look..
[IMG]http://i44.************/281t2ly.jpg[/IMG]

The place has two entrances - here's one - this was how all gates to the city used to look like a few centuries ago..
[IMG]http://i40.************/2sacjnl.jpg[/IMG]

Mainstreet
[IMG]http://i42.************/vo3lao.jpg[/IMG]

The church that is still very active to this day
[IMG]http://i42.************/29x9bi9.jpg[/IMG]

The home of the Chief of Defense
[IMG]http://i43.************/91fjuc.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i39.************/fe3ujs.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i42.************/2d2euj8.jpg[/IMG]

Let's take a walk up on the bastions..
[IMG]http://i42.************/k46sg3.jpg[/IMG]

The star shaped moat and sloping sides
[IMG]http://i44.************/11uumq0.jpg[/IMG]

In case of war the outlaying windmills might have been lost to the invaders so the fortification has it own
[IMG]http://i41.************/2qiqwt5.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i39.************/28h0ebp.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i39.************/2hxn3b4.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i44.************/301pksi.jpg[/IMG]

The southern entrance
[IMG]http://i44.************/skzxh0.jpg[/IMG]

The place used to packed with cannons defending the habour and city
[IMG]http://i42.************/10ydsfs.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i44.************/34o52l0.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i43.************/2zgaf0g.jpg[/IMG]

Now there's only a couple cannons left for atmosphere
[IMG]http://i40.************/j59f1z.jpg[/IMG]

And to keep the tourists behave
[IMG]http://i41.************/or78rd.jpg[/IMG]

This bastion covers the entrance to the habour
[IMG]http://i41.************/mh562t.jpg[/IMG]

In the habour you will find two other forts defendeing the habour inlet ( Sweden in the horrizon )
[IMG]http://i39.************/2nkl151.jpg[/IMG]

Northern Entrance
[IMG]http://i42.************/znsjub.jpg[/IMG]

Yes the place is active and it is protected quite well despite the lax atmosphere
[IMG]http://i42.************/2luorwp.jpg[/IMG]

Change of guards
[IMG]http://i41.************/260ecur.jpg[/IMG]

Time to leave..
[IMG]http://i43.************/2610oza.jpg[/IMG]

Memorial to the fallen Danes
[IMG]http://i42.************/2816hvr.jpg[/IMG]

Swans patrolling the moat..
[IMG]http://i42.************/6iz90o.jpg[/IMG]

That's it for this part... stay tuned

How do you mean, that's it? I only got 21 pages of Nordic beauty? We want more!

Thanks for the photos, I have good memories of both cities from my trip in April. My photos aren't half as good, though.

I love the warm sienna terracotta colours and creamy yellows of some of the buildings. Utterly charming.

That is Frederiksberg Slot - a former Royal Palace that now is part of the Military's officer school..

It is located in Frederiksberg Park that is one of the best parks in the city!
