“Disappointing”

Kristiansten Fortress
Ranked #5 of 106 things to do in Trondheim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2017

Took the trip uphill to the fortress with the promise of great city views only to find the trees so overgrown that the view was obscured and lots of construction works on the fortress itself which restricted access.

Made with the most modern castle disign of the times, Kristiasten Festning is a place to go when in Trondheim. Situated over Bakkladed, it takes 10 min to be there. A big part of Norways history is there. Free entrance. One can take a pleasant walk arownd the walls overlooking the city views and visit the main bulding with a nice museum also for free. Alot to learn about the norwegian and Skandinavian history. A nice cafe-restaurant works at the permice. It worth a visit.

There is no charge to enter here and stroll around (even the parking is free for a short period of time). You can get a good view over the city, plus some of the history from around the fort. It's worth visiting even though you'll have to climb up the hill from Old Town to visit it (if you on a bicycle, you can take the bicycle lift up the steepest part of the hill!)

This is definitely the best place in trondheim where chill out, watch the sunset, the midnight sun or the northern lights, according to the season.

Well worth the short climb for the view over this wonderful city. The tower is free and museum well worth seeing
