The Star of Copenhagen

Part time machine, part barracks, and part park, Kastellet is definitely the start of Copenhagen's attractions. Not that everything else isn't as good, it's that Kastellet is literally a star.

Built on the cutting edge of 17th century fort design, Kastellet takes advantage of a star-shaped periphery, which maximizes both cool factor and effectiveness as a military stronghold. Since the Danes don't make fortified war a priority these days, Kastellet is now a favorite spot to meander. Whether you're checking out the old military buildings or just to escape town for a bit, a quick jaunt through Kastellet will definitely fortify your trip to Copenhagen.
