Kristiansten Fort

This fort was built after the great city fire in 1681, and now proudly stands guard over the city centre. Enjoy a spectacular view over Trondheim and its surroundings, the fjord and the mountains. 
From its strategic high ground the fortress played an important role in repelling invading Swedish forces in 1718, an interesting part of our history you can learn more about by visiting the fortress.
Free entrance.
