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.HistoryConstructionConstruction began in 1913, but was battle-ready in June 1916. 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 cosy place, and a great place for a family outing. It is easy to get to and you can spend lots of time there

  • Was there during the winter holidays. Nice tour and interactive iPad games that make history come alive. Interesting to hear about Denmark's role in World War I, trenches, thick Bertha etc. For children there is a share interactive, that captures them quite clearly. Fine experience for the whole family.

  • Mosede Fort is an excellent museum for both children and adults. Kids will love that one must touch it whole and adults at all levels can learn something about the period in the many thematic spaces.

  • Surprisingly great visitors ' place-even on a rainy, overcast day and. Super nice and imaginatively decorated museum with super dissemination with the iPad opportunity for family games, adventure drawers in each room, phones ringing and disseminates stories, many great old stuff-many you can touch and try. A lot of sound effects, which, however, (on my hard of hearing child) can seem a little daunting, but for the rest of us are powerful and fun. There are wonderful opportunities with outdoor play, ran and beach. And even a restaurant nearby. It clearly best of the fort, I've seen (have seen some of them on Sealand). Can be recommended for all ages. Had an hour available. Could easily have spent more time! Extra plus; free for all under 18 (rarely anything is free for ages 12-18). Just 90 DKK for adults and half price for count citizens.
