Tent sizes

Due to the limited size of the campsite, tents must meet specific size limits for length and width, especially in the peak season.

As a rule, tents may be up to 3 metres wide and 3.5 metres long. In some parts of the campsite, there is room for tents up to 4 metres long.


The campsite offers a range of basic facilities

In Hertugindens Vaskehus, there is a small kitchen with a stove, two refrigerators (no freezer), microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, pots, pans and kitchen utensils. Outdoor sink with cold water and gas-fired grill. As a minimum, you will need to bring your own plates, cutlery, cups, glasses and dish towels.

At Hertugindens Vaskehus, there is also a small room next to the kitchen furnished with café tables and chairs. It is possible to charge your phone, etc.

In a separate toilet building, there are two flushing toilets and a small sink. There are shower facilities and additional toilets located north of Store Tårn.

The waste sorting station for incinerable waste and glass is located next to the toilet. 


During the peak season (29 June–9 August), the campsite is extended to include the northern section of Kongens Have. Unfortunately, the campsite’s facilities cannot be enlarged. This means that using these facilities, especially the kitchen, requires extra patience during the five-week peak season. The campsite in Kongens Have is not far from the toilets at Vagten near Store Tårn. Campers are also welcome to use these toilets. This same building also houses showers.

Hertugindens Bastion is always filled up first. Campers taking a seasonal pitch will generally be referred to Hertugindens Bastion, while families and smaller tents will primarily be referred to Kongens Have. When making your reservation, you are welcome to indicate where you would like to pitch your tent. However, we cannot guarantee a specific pitch.

NOTE: According to legal and regulatory requirements, there must be a fire break of three metres between the tents. The fire break at Hertugindens Bastion is marked by timber beams. You are welcome to sit or stand on these beams to look over the fortress wall, or use them to put things on, etc. This fire distance requirement also applies in Kongens Have, although the fire break is not marked by beams.
