LOCATION

Gamlebyen Hotell enjoys a unique location in the heart of the Old Town. Here you can have a coffee with the locals on the “gossip bench” or jugabenken right outside. A few steps further and you’re at Gamlebyen Gjestgiveri’s breakfast room – you’ll have a lovely start to your day in this old rectory with its vast windows and views of the river and the fortress town.

A lighted ski track, great footpaths and the embankments surround the Old Town, making it virtually impossible not to get some exercise. You’ll find a host of things to do here, whether you’d prefer a jog, taking in some air or waking up slowly with the Old Town’s goats and hens. If you’re lucky, you might even find a freshly laid egg!

A few hundred metres away you’ll find the Gamle Fredrikstad Golf Course’s impressive 18-hole course and, right next door, Kongstenhallen, with separate swimming baths and outdoor pool in the summer. The Actic fitness centre is located here. Both offer a wonderful view of Kongsten Fort, which is open to visitors or as an excursion destination all year round.

The Old Town itself is a great place to spend a lot of time in. Here you can find small shops selling everything but the kitchen sink, clothes shops, metalsmiths, potters, artists, galleries, cafes, restaurants, museums and Glasshytta, where not only can you watch the glass-blowers at work, but you can have a go yourself or do some shopping. The shops are open on Sundays all the year round. There’s aIso a flea market in the square every Saturday and, during Advent, the entire Old Town is transformed into a stress-free, childhood Christmas with a big Christmas market held every weekend.
