"Islands with Red Arrows" Canals and harbour Tip by grandmaR
Canals and harbour, Copenhagen: 19 reviews and 37 photos
Favorite thing: I am always interested in ATONs (Aids To Navigation) and a friend said they envisioned me going around with my camera and photographing lighthouses everywhere. And that's not far from the truth, although I do photograph things other than lighthouses.
In any case, when we sailed out of Copenhagen, I saw what appeared to be red arrows, so I took photos of them. Then when I looked them up I saw that the name of these things was Middelgrundsfort Vest
The Middelgrundsfort is a fortress built on a shoal off the harbor of København. After many years of disuse, the fortress now houses a restaurant and conference center. Located about 3.5 km (2 mi) northeast of the harbor; accessible by passenger ferry. If it had not been so cold and rainy, I would have liked to take that ferry out there.
These objects were built in 1975. There is an osculating white, red, or green light depending on direction in a round lantern, painted red.
