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.

  • We hiked up and were wowed by the views, the number of families and kids picnicking, the hiking paths, the fort itself, etc... Be sure to hike up and check it out while in Trondheim.

  • The most important with visiting this fortress is the magnificent view of the city. We walked up from the lovely Bakklandet area which is nearby.

  • Great view of the city from above. It is a very nice historic site which you can enter for free. It will be windy and cold in the winter.
  • A must in Trondheim. Nothing it's gonna take your breath out. Good views absolutely.
