Parks and former fortifications in the heart of Copenhagen

Ostre Anlaeg, Park in Copenhagen
 

Langelinie - Eastern Park "Østre Anlæg" - the Botanical Gardens - Rosenborg Castle - the King's Garden - the Armed Forces Historic Housing Complex "Nyboder" - Kastellet - Langelinie

This walk starts and ends at the pier of Langelinie. We walk through some of the parks that used to be part of the ramparts that surrounded and protected the old city of Copenhagen. Today they are semi-connected, and one is the Botanical Gardens with beautiful greenhouses, lakes and plants at many ground levels.

On the way back we cross Rosenborg Castle, the barracks of the Royal Guard and the King's Garden, a small but very popular park for recreational activities such as picnics and sunbathing. We walk through "Nyboder", the Armed Forces Historic Housing Complex with its charming yellow townhouses dedicated to people serving the navy or military forces. We finish with a walk around "Kastellet", the ramparts - which still holds part of the military administration. From the top of the ramparts we have a fine view over the busy harbour as well as the city, and we can enjoy the fine old red buildings.

If time allows - and the church is open - we will stop to take a look. Shortly after we are back at the cruise ships pier.
