Billedresultat for kastellet

We invite you to join our Tour of Kastellet, which is a famous military building in the middle of Copenhagen. Kastellet is one of north Europe’s finest and best preserved fortifications. It dates back to 1664 and was an important part of Copenhagen’s defenses.

We will hear about the history of Kastellet and see how the soldiers lived in the mid 1700's. We will also explore the prison and see the cell where Struensee was held before his execution. Struensee was  the doctor of Christian 7th and he had a major impact on how Danish society turned out. 

We recommend to wear warm clothes and comfortable shoes in order to have a pleasant stay in the open areas. The tour will take 1,5 hours.
