Walk through Danish war history and ride through Copenhagen

Copenhagen and war are linked, so much so that to this day the fortress at Kastellet remains an active military area belonging to the Ministry of Defence. The Danish War Museum will tell you all about the many wars Denmark was involved in since 1500, including the Dano-Swedish Wars and the English Wars. The hop-on hop-off bus will take you all over Copenhagen, including to Kastellet and the Danish War Museum.

500 years of military history at the Danish War Museum

The Danish War Museum, a cultural history museum specialised in military artefacts, houses five permanent exhibitions that showcase the entire span of Danish military history from the 1500s to today. On the ground floor, visitors can explore the impressive 156-metre-long Arsenal Hall, which displays a wide range of weapons and military equipment, from Christian IV's massive cannon weight from 1614 to modern weapons from Iraq. The Arsenal Hall also invites visitors to delve deeper into different aspects of warfare through eight fascinating stories.

Another exhibition on the ground floor, A Distant War, takes visitors on a mission to Afghanistan, recreating a Danish military camp and its surroundings as realistically as possible. The Danish Navy exhibition on the first floor lets visitors experience life at sea in war and peace, showcasing the development of the Danish Navy from the start of the 16th century up to the present day. The Denmark at War exhibition, also on the first floor, tells the stories of 21 Danish wars from 1500 to today, offering a unique overview of Danish military history through hundreds of artefacts.

The final exhibition, Treasures of the War Museum, displays unique and rare treasures from around the world, including hunting weapons, model planes, samurai armour, medals, sanitary appliances, and Cold War posters. In summary, the Danish War Museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in military history, offering a fascinating and immersive look at the country's military past and present.
