About Christiansø Administration

Christiansø holds its very own special status in Denmark in accordance with the Royal Resolution of 1845. Christiansø is not part of a municipality. Instead it is administered directly by the state through the Danish Ministry of Defence. Christiansø Administration is the local authority of the Ministry of Defence, responsible for maintenance and operation of the island, as well as for performing state, regional and local authority tasks.

Christiansø shall be preserved as a vibrant community and a cultural-historical military fortification, with ongoing expansion of public access to these fortifications.
