The old fortress island directly in front of Copenhagen is a very isolated, but also a popular and special stop for sailors. The facility was once used to protect against Swedish invaders and is located between the two countries in Öresund. The operators had used the listed fort through a port with sanitary facilities and a restaurant with an event hall in recent years and invested considerable sums in maintaining the facility, which had fallen into disrepair when it was taken over.
But obviously the work did not necessarily take place as the museum administration Slots-og Kulturstyrelsen had wished, because a few weeks ago the officials prohibited the port from operating under a new law on the preservation of architectural monuments. As a result, a storm of indignation arose among sailors on social media, which apparently now led to an agreement. As reported by the operators, Flakfortet can be started again immediately, the dismantling of the sanitary facilities has been postponed. However, the long-term preservation is not yet guaranteed, for the future there are still "great challenges", according to the operators.
