What is the Middelgrundsfort?

The Middelgrund Fortress is the world’s largest man-made island, which for many years served as a sea fortress. Historically, it has been a significant part of Copenhagen’s defence, together with Trekroner Fort and Flakfortet. Today the island is owned by the Middelgrundsfonden, supported by the Nordea Foundation and serves as the “youth island” for the Danish Scout Corps and other youth organizations.

At the old sea fortress, Scouts and other young people can have unique outdoor experiences and organize various activities. The youth island is also open to businesses, organizations and public institutions.

How long does it take to sail to Middelgrundsfortet?

For motor it takes a good half hour to sail to Middelgrundsfortet. If we use the sails it depends on the wind conditions of the day, but we usually recommend that you add 1-2 hours to the engine time. This gives you the opportunity and time to set sails and let the wind take you to your destination.
