Fredericia was established as a fortress town in 1650. On the land side, the town was laid out in circular form with nine large moated bastions. On the waterfront, the town had a somewhat weaker fortification line together with a citadel as its last defence. There is every indication that Fredericia was planned as a fortress town. The streets are regular and entirely perpendicular. Fredericia was the only town in Denmark with freedom of religion and right of asylum. In 1657, the fortifications were conquered by Swedish troops, and again during the Schleswig Wars I and II of 1849 and 1864. The fortifications were dismantled in 1909 and the green ramparts converted into a large public park.
