Reviewed 23 June 2014

Nice view and very quiet there. You can park your car there and walkaround and look. If you like you can visit the canon museum also, but you have to pay a entrance fee.

“amazing insight”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Very rare to find something this original and open to view completely and for just £7pp. So much original equipment and machinery inside the fort giving an insight from the time.. Fantastic views out across the sea and worth the trip for the views.
A slight walk up from the unsurfaced carpark. Site not really suitable for those with mobility issues.
Only 5 minutes easy car journey from Kristiansand.

“WWII History -- be prepared to walk”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My dad was the one who wanted to go to Møvik fort and I tagged along. I was very surprised by the gun, the museum and the preservation of the Nazi fort. This huge gun protected almost half the distance from Norway to Denmark. One caution -- there is lots of walking with not too many places for my dad (78) to stop and rest. The paths to the rest of the fort could use a few more signs as we wandered off the path a few times but overall Very Good.
Great views from the fort.

“WWII memorial”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Møvik fort, also known as the Kanonmuseum, was bulit during WWII. The big canon was planned to work in common with a similar one in Hirtshals, Denmark. Together they should master all the seas between the two countries. It were never fired in war, just once as an excersise. You reach it by the bus M1 to Møvik or Flekkerøy.
