Where is it?

The next in line of northern forts to protect Copenhagen was the triangular Lyngby Fort. To find requires two things; persistence and local knowledge. It's situated in the middle of a nice residential area with medium sized bungalows and the two or three entrances are very discreet. It's covered with greenery so to get a closer look at it is next to impossible. It was built in 1887-92 partly by private funding until the money ran out and the Ministry of War took over.

As with the other forts it was decommissioned after WWI and left to itself. It's now mainly used as a form of park by the locals where they can walk the dog or go crazy with a spray can.
