Kasernen (the barracks) is the former marine barracks at Lynetten. Lynetten was one of the four islands that were established in the late 1800s as a defence for Copenhagen Harbour. The young Danish cadets were placed at the barracks as marine soldiers until the mid 1960ies. Beside Kasernen lies a minor bunker plant, a battery with a war barracks.
Kasernen now functions as Teaterøen's café and foyer in the lifted ground floor. The former gymnasium (athletic facility), where the cadets likely were pushed to their physical limits, now holds an auditorium. Take a look at the pictures to find out more about the different rooms and spaces.
