Voldene – Somewhere to go for a take-away coffee

In Copenhagen Voldene is the last existing proof that this once so small city had a defensive fortifications to keep out the enemies of Denmark. The other fortresses were blown down during the big industrialization here in Denmark and Copenhagen in particular. 

Voldene is basically some big ramparts which are bordered by water on one side and on the other side you have Christianshavn which is one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Copenhagen. If you cross Voldene and make your way to the other side of the water you will hit Amagerbro which is another neighbourhood and the last one to be built during the industrialization. 

I use Voldene as a getaway place to clear my mind and enjoy the nice weather, if the weather is nice that is. I like to get a take away coffee with a good friend of mine and then discuss the world’s situation. There is lots to talk about and you can walk quite a large distance on Voldene from one end to the other. 

It’s also scarily quiet on Voldene considering the city of Copenhagen is just on the other side of this fortress.
