The battery was originally dubbed "Mosede Battery" but was popularly called Mosede Fort. It was abandoned in 1932.World War 2The Fort was re-manned in 1939, but it was captured by the Germans in 1940. The Germans used it as an observations post and prison camp. When Denmark was liberated, the government used it for the same purpose as the Germans had done. 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 will be dehumidified sufficiently, in order to store historical objects safely. It is 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.

  • It is a fortress of Denmark was built in 1913. In 2014, has been published as a museum. Whether or not is taken to high enters the entrance fee to look worried. But I tried in the Copenhagen card is available. Went inside and or karaoke bars in his speech in addition to entertaining, and understand information for Denmark in the war are often found living in the location. I think it wouldn't hurt stop by if you went near but that is not enough to aim all the way here from Japan.

  • Mosede fort included for many years ago in the defence of Copenhagen. The Fort was a few years ago, very dilapidated but is now lovingly restored and is now the setting for an exhibition that sheds light on during the Denmark 1. During World War II. It is a very exciting story disseminated on a really good way: Not much text and tamper-proof at all! Denmark was neutral under 1. During World War II, and we've all heard the stories about gullashbaronerne. But the stories about the price of neutrality and on how the first steps towards the welfare State was done 100 years ago-they were new to me. Also the Copenhageners kept pigs (if they were allowed!), and cultivated potatoes on the boulevards! The Museum is really exciting-for all ages!
