Kristiansten Fortress, Trondheim
(4.1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Standing on a hilltop offering a spectacular view of the city, Kristiansten Fortress originally served in the 17th century as a city defense wall. During World War II, the occupying German forces used it as an execution site. Tour the defense museum within the main building, the Donjon. The former commandant's residence now houses a full restaurant, and activity trails are available for children. Wear comfortable shoes to walk to the fortress and pack a light jacket.

  • The best place to get a good view of the city without doing any hiking.
  • Piekny widok na Trondheim i zatoke ze wzgorza.
  • Loved chambering to the top. Wow I ended on the roof. Take care of children and stupid dogs. Mind you, fell on my ass four times. Take care on the ice if you visit in winter Well worth the climb and the sore bum. #BikBok xXx
  • Must visit when going to Trondheim. Good place to hangout when the weather is great. The place even has a restaurant.
  • One of the best places to get a clear view of the city a must if you are visiting the town. I personally don't go here for any other reason other than the view
