Langelinie (The Long Line)
Langelinie is a beautiful place in Copenhagen; it’s a port route located on the waterfront of Østerbro district in Copenhagen, not far from the city center. Originally Langelinie was a boardwalk that used to go all the way around Kastellet and in to the shoreline along the current Strandboulevard. The promenade was part of the military fortification of Copenhagen back in the days of conflict in Scandinavia, and regular people were not allowed to enter.
In 1848 the absolute monarchy was abolished and the area became open to the public. Today Langelinie consists of a park on the outer surface of Kastellet, a promenade and a marina on the 1 kilometer long pier that forms Langelinie. This pier was established in 1894, and is often today visited by big cruise ships and naval vessels, which stops in Copenhagen on their cruise or just for military business, such as exercises or drills.
