Activities

Fredrikstad's Fortified Town is one of the most popular attractions in Norway. And it's not only well-preserved, but still very much alive. Shops, galleries and café buzz with life, and history is relived when the 18th century meets the present.

Things to do in the Fortified Town Activities taken from:

Visit Fredrikstad & Hvaler
  • Glasshytta

    Glasshytta is the place to see glass art created before your very eyes. In the course of just a few minutes, molten glass is fashioned into a finished product. Glasshytta in Fredrikstad’s Fortified Town is the first glass studio in Norway.

  • Commandantens Promenade

    Take a guided tour around the Fortified Town on a route that’s completely different. Artist Alexander Hermansen takes the role as Commandant Hans Jacob Scheel, the ruler of the town in the late 18th century – and we can promise you an entertaining and colourful rendering of the town’s history.
