“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Walk across the river on the old bridge past the multi-colored houses, up the hill, and you will be rewarded with wonderful views of the central City of Trondheim, including, Nidaros Cathedral. I did this walk in the early morning and the ground was wet, so good shoes were a necessity especially when walking in areas on the slippery earth surrounding the fort. The walk is not level and as one reviewer mentioned is a bit steep in areas. The views are well worth the exercise.

“Fantastic views of Trondheim”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Was nice to see the different neighborhoods that make up Trondheim. Would be a great location for a wedding or family function. There is a cafe on sight that serves good, according to my son they have great Hamburgers. :) The "tower" was closed so we did not get to explore the inside. Not a place to visit on a cold windy, rainy day.

“Nice views of Trondheim”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

This is an easily accessible fortress from downtown core and it is free. At the site and on the way you have many opportunities to take superb pictures.

“Kristiansen Fortress”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

For the intrepid hiker/biker or those with motorized transportation. We took our bikes up the hill, and half of us had to walk part of the way. The other half was quite out of breath. The view was gorgeous. The price was free, so... It was the only real time we had a good look at Munkholmen. The bike descent was invigorating.

“Great view of Trondheim”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

This is well worth a visit, surrounded by lovely park land. Plenty of areas to enjoy a picnic or can buy at the fortress cafe. Climb the tower and have great view of the city and surrounding area. Interesting displays are well organised on the various floor of the tower. Make the effort you will not be disappointed.
