Trekroner Fort

Trekroner S°fort (literally Trekroner Sea Fortress) is a fortification at the entrance to the Copenhagen harbour. It was part of Copenhagen's fortifications. The original location of Trekroner Fort was a few hundred meters north of the current. In 1713 three old line ships had been sunk to form the basis for a battery. One of the ships was called Trekroner. Hence fort has received its name. Construction of the current fort was begun in 1787. Fortress was an important part of the Danish line of defence during the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801. It was also in action during the British attack on Copenhagen in 1807. From 1818 to 1828 and in 1860 fort was strongly enhanced but its military significance diminished after the First World War and in 1934 it was sold to the Copenhagen harbour services. During the German occupation of Denmark fortress was used by Germans as barracks. Later it was vacant until 1984 when it was opened to the public.
