Mosede Fort, located in Mosede, Denmark is a coastal fort build, part of Tunestillingen, in the years before and during the First World War, to protect the Bay of Køge from possible German naval invasions. It is now a protected area with a museum, grassy fields for recreation and a restaurant.HistoryConstructionMosede Fort was as part of Tunestillingen, a 22km long line of fortifications around outer-Copenhagen, leading military historian A. N. Hvidt to calling it the "Danevirke of Sjælland". Construction began in 1913, but was first battle-ready in July 1916. The battery was originally dubbed "Mosede Battery" but was popularly called Mosede Fort. It was fully manned until 1922, and was thereafter only used for drills.World War 2The Fort was re-manned in 1939, but it was captured by the Germans in 1940, who used it as an observations post and prison camp. When Denmark was liberated, the government continued to use the fort as a detention camp until 1947. It was then handed over to Hjemmeværnet, who used it for shooting practice and drills until 1970, when it got overrun and "liberated" by the local population. It has since then been a park open for public.Mosede Fort TodayMosede Fort is now being preserved by Greve Kommune, it is very popular as a recreational area for ballgames, picnics and other past time activities. It also has a restaurant. In 2010 Greve Kommune along with Greve Museum, began to restore and insulate the old fort so it could be dehumidified sufficiently, in order to store historical objects safely. It was planned to open Denmark's first "Denmark during World War 1" museum with the inauguration on 1 August 2014 - 100 anniversary of Germany's declaration of war on Russia. On 30 September 2012, during the celebration of Copenhagen's fortification, a 120mm Howitzer was presented by Greve Museum as the trademark for Mosede Fort. The museum opened 6 August 2014, with HRH Prince Joachim of Denmark attending.

  • I lived in the neighborhood as a child, so when my family and I were vacationing in Denmark, I thought that my children would have to view the site. It wasn't really supposed to we were going inside the Fort itself, but because we coincidentally arrived as a guided tour was due to start, so we took it with too. Children-and adults-are allowed to touch and fidget the exhibits, which makes it a special treat at the same time as they learn about Denmark during the first world war. Very instructive. Can be recommended.

  • Lunch/smear broke right at the top in terms of both price and size; cute and friendly. Small selection of wine on glass, but reasonable wine list.

  • Modern, interactive museum. Friendly staff - always happy to help and answer questions. Don't miss the public tour at 12:00 (in Danish)!
  • Very interesting museum to those interested in history of Danemark during the Great War. For me as a student oh history was very impressive to read about Danish neutrality during the war. One interesting fact I learn in museum - so call Zimmermanns telegram was send from Copenhagen because all Germans cables for communication with overseas were destroyed by Allied Powers.
  • ok
  • School visits: Mathematics course. Super well kept place there have carried out exhibitions and great workshops to worked with trigonometry, degrees, circles, and other geometric work. There is a focus on math in use, and the entire process is rammesat in a learning game where students will have the opportunity to use their collected data in a specific context. Clearly worth a visit!

  • Exciting beautiful out, there are beautiful reconditioned. The price, however, is the primary reason it only gets 4. The Museum is created interactively and in this way is a good way to get knowledge. However, missing the opportunity for introspection. From the Fort are spectacular views and you can even have picnic with or at present, get discount on Jenner seaside.
