The Fortress

fortressAfter a quick tour along the fishing harbour, we have reached Korsør Fortress – also known as the Coastal Battery. The well-preserved medieval tower here is well worth a visit, as is the great Magazine building of King Christian IV, which now houses the Korsør Town and Crossing Museum. Take a walk around the Fortress construction and enjoy the view from the top of the bastions.
From the fortress grounds, there are views of two of the town’s distinguished buildings, the old railway station and Hotel Storebælt. The old railway station from 1907 was closed down when the Great Belt Fixed Link was established. Hotel Storebælt was built as a hotel when the railway came to Korsør in 1856. This hotel was where Hans Christian Andersen liked to spend the night in the course of his travels around Denmark.
