Kastellet is one of the best preserved star fortresses in Northern Europe (yes, star fortresses are a thing). Basically, it is composed of enormous earth works in the shape of a star, with two moats. King Christian IV began the construction of the fortress in the early 17th century. It has seen attacks by Sweden, England, and Nazi Germany since that time. In the late 90’s it was renovated, and now on a sunny day you’ll see families and joggers out enjoying the beautiful landscaping. I took these picture during a walk around the fortress in August.
