Most Danes will associate the historical naval battery Sixtus as the fortification where salutes are fired on official occasions. It was also from here that crown-prince Frederik closely followed the course of the Battle of Copenhagen, 2 April 1801.

The Sixtus battery is a listed heritage site, in the form of a fortification with ramparts and batteries on the tip of the naval base Holmen, protruding into the port of Copenhagen. With grass-clad ramparts, old Linden trees and ashlar walls, it is a picturesque and public place. Much of the site, however, was till recently in a state of decay, calling for a thorough restoration and re-building effort.

This became possible through new funding, much of which is a result of the support of the A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation.

The Sixtus battery has now been restored, with a focus on an architecturally complete solution for buildings and landscape, to again let the precise ground-forms and features become a distinct part of the Copenhagen port ensemble. The work was carried out respecting the authenticity and uniqueness of the site, and its cultural and architectural heritage, including the use of historical records and photographs.

The project includes improving the public accessibility, by providing for disabled access to the ramparts, the incorporation of a path, and the establishment of a new jetty. New elements added to the site are designed in a consistent, contemporary language using durable materials. Seats, stairs, railing and retaining walls are made of cor-ten steel, which is a rustic material with a modern look that ties in with the robust military installations. The cor-ten steels texture and colour blends into the overall landscape, as something distinctively new yet not dominating the historic facility.
