Secret tunnel discovered under train station

Archaeologists have unearthed a mysterious 19th-Century tunnel hidden beneath a station in Denmark.
The passageway, which was found underneath Osterport Station in Copenhagen, is square-shaped and measures 3ft wide and 3ft tall - barely enough for someone to squeeze through.

Held together with wooden beams, the tunnel appears to pass underneath what was once Copenhagen's defense ramparts - suggesting that it may have been an escape passage.

"When you find such a tunnel, it gives a rush to the body," said archaeologist Christian Andreas Flensborg. " You ask yourself how extensive these systems are and are there many more tunnels."
So far around 10ft of tunnel has been excavated, however it is thought to be much longer than that.

"The tunnel is seemingly cut off by the rampart at Osterport Station, but the other end continues under Ostbanegade," said Flensborg. "We don't know if it turns or where it ends."

"It's a mystery."

I haven't heard about this tunnel before, but based on the location I find that the idea of it being connected to the old defensive works very likely. Østerport where it was found literally translate as East Gate and was one of the three gates in the old city walls. It is also very close to Kastellet which was an important part of the fortifications and one of the very few parts still standing. The place where the tunnel was found is to the right of the fortification. Many places in Denmark still have many bunkers around, mostly from World War II. Some have been closed, but others are still in... [More]

Are you sure? How far is it from the Carlsberg Brewery?

If I tell you more I have to kill you......... Sadly the Carlsberg brewery is no longer in Copenhagen. Anyway it was on the opposite end of the city. I like the idea though.

Nice elephants at the old brewery, though! Is the new brewery not in Danmark?  I assumed it would still be somewhere in København.

Usually tunnels of this dimension 3'x3' are used for underground utilities. Maybe in 1874 it was used for gas lines.
