    Fredriksten Festning, Halden, NO 4 more images

    by gubbi1 Written Apr 29, 2012

    The fortifications are located quite high above town on a strategic position. It was in 1660 that King Frederik III. of Denmark and Norway gave the order to build the fortifications as a protection against the troops of the neighboring Sweden. It took 40 years to finish the construction which was planned by the Dutch Willem Coucheron. The Fredriksten Festning was never captured.

    Opening times
    Halden Historical Collections are open from 18 May until 31 August: 10:00 – 17:00.
    The fortress grounds are open day and night.

    It is really amazing that Halden is famous for being a rock town. Why?

    Have you heard about Wig Wam- rock band from Norway? They had played in Halden for some years before they became the 4 th at Euro vision 2005.

    There are many local bands here. And there is a possibility that some of them will become rock stars in the future.
    Many norvegians and germans are coming to Halden in order to visit Rock Festival at summer.
