  • On the Trondenes Peninsula 4 km north of the town center of Harstad, Norway you will find historic tracks from the stone age up to World War II. Get there by bus or walk on the path along the sea two Trondenes Historical Centre. There you will find a small but informing collection from this region. Walking on to the Trondenes Church you will pass the botanic garden with plants from this region. You pass the memory disc of the HSE "Glorious" disaster WW II. Then you are at the Trondenes Church, built about the year 1200. If open you should enter the church: It is beautiful in a decent way. Sculptures and paintings from about 1460. Lübeck artists. Walking on to the north you come to the ruins of the prison camp where the German soldiers kept prisoners from Russia and Serbia. Over 800 of them died there. They had to build the "Trondenes Fortress" with the 4 huge "Hitler Canons". (But to visit these you have to contact the Tourist center at the seaside in Harstad). You may continue walking on to the sea that the north-west side of the peninsula (Altevågen). There you will see the remains of the big houses where the viking kept their ships, The vikings in this area were clever and strong imprinting the events in Ireland for many years. (Not visiting the Canon's you will use 2-4 hours walking through more than 2000 years of the history).
