Kastellet - The Citadel of Copenhagen - Denmark - Fortress - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The "Kastellet" (the Citadel in English) has built in 1662 as a part of the fortification to protect Copenhagen. Since then it has housed the military headquarter for the Danish forces - and parts of the area is still being used for this purpose. But most of the area is today open to the public. It is a very popular and green recreational area in the centre of Copenhagen.
