Kristiansten Fortress in Trondheim, Norway

Kristiansten (or Christiansten) Fortress is located on a hill east of the city of Trondheim in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. My friend and I walked from Trondheim center. It didn't take too long, and we were able to see more of the city. Since the fortress is placed on a hill, you should prepare yourself for an amazing view over the city.

The fortress was built after the fire of Trondheim in 1681. The purpose for building the fortress was to protect the city against attack from the east. The construction was finished in 1685.

The fortress managed to fulfill its purpose in 1718 when Swedish Forces laid siege against Trondheim. The fortress was decommissioned in 1816 by king Charles XIV John Of Sweden.

It's a really cool place with a lot of history which I would love to learn more about. As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I love old buildings. So visiting this place was awesome.

A very informative post. It would be nice if you shared not just the facts about the place, but the general experience as well.

Facts can be read in history books, but experiences can only come from individuals.

Cheers :)

Yes, it is. Very open, but still a lot to see. Yeah, I liked them too. Yes, does this doorway qualify for the DistinctiveDoors hashtag?
