This fort is close to the cruise port. After we visited the town we walked up to this fort and cut through this beautiful area and back to the port gate. It's not incredibly big and it's very walkable. There is a souvenir store with...More

This location is one of th most important parts of Norway and its history, but it won't be obvious. If you don't read up on it or have a good tour guide its significance won't be known. Architecturally unique as a blend of Scottish and...More
