The Fortifications of Copenhagen
 

The Charlottenlund Fort

 The Charlottenlund Fort, originally Charlottenlund Battery, was build during the years 1886 to 1888  at the coast below
 the Ch
arlottenlund Castle.
 The Fort was part of the line of naval forts, that were supposed to protect Copenhagen form attacks form the seaside.
 From Charlottenlund it is possible to see the two other naval forts, the Flak Fort
and the Middelgrund Fort.

 The fort was armed with 12 pcs. of 29 cm haubits and 2 pcs. of 120 mm. rapid firing guns.

 Today there is a campingsite at the fort during the summer.
