The old Citadel in copenhagen

The right thing to do the evening before All payers Day, (beside eat warm bread) would be to take a walk aroud the old Citadel in Copenhagen, and by that keep an old Danish tradition alive.

The citadel is about 350 years old, it is one of the best preserved star fortresses in Northern Europe (Wikipedia).

    I am planning to go there soon. It looks like a lovely place to walk. I am wondering how long did it take to get around the whole fortress?
