Fortresses

The Oslo region’s many fortresses stand as proud fragments of Norway’s history of defense. Some have museums where you can learn about life in and around the fortresses in times of war and peace, and most of them have beautiful park areas attached. A few have even housed nobles, and if you listen very carefully, you might hear the faint sounds of feet marching, cannons being fired, and a sweeping galliard across heavy oak floors.
