Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Central Norway / Trondelag / Trondheim Municipality / Trondheim / Kristiansten Fortress
Standing on a hilltop offering a spectacular view of the city, Kristiansten Fortress originally served in the 17th century as a city defense wall. During World War II, the occupying German forces used it as an execution site. Tour the defense museum within the main building, the Donjon. The former commandant's residence now houses a full restaurant, and activity trails are available for children. Wear comfortable shoes to walk to the fortress and pack a light jacket. Our Trondheim trip planning app makes visiting Kristiansten Fortress and other Trondheim attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Kristiansten Fortress Reviews
We walked up here from our hotel in the ice and snow. It was quite the trek, but well worth it for the views alone. It hold a majestic location overlooking Tronheim and the fjord. Very beautiful! more »
The view over the old city is simply stunning. The forteress itself is still well preserved. Interesting cultural and historical stop more »
A well preserved fortress, with some excellent views over the city, the river and the harbour. A nice restaurant if you need a snack after the hike to the top of the hill! We enjoyed the different vistas from all of the ramparts.
Nice view over the city. Interesting gallery inside. For free. Just go there :-)
