The history of the Nazi occupation of Norway is interesting and seeing the demolished ruins of this coastal defense installation was equally interesting. However, you must blaze your own path from the information center to the top of the ruins and you must carefully watch your step as the area is covered with free-roaming sheep and wonderful piles of sheep...

A wonderful opportunity to explore a well-preserved WW2 German gun emplacement and complex looking out to the North Sea, plenty of trench systems, blockhouses and outposts to look at. There is a coffee shop and toilets on site and while we visited an art and sculpture exhibition. All free. The only disappointment was the 'Museum' - 50 Kr per person... More

Thank you for the review! We are happy to hear that you found Nordber Fort facinating:) The room you are referring to as "Museum" is in fact a temporarily exibition from NaturExpo. This exhibition will be in Norberg until august 2015 and is not owned Nordberg Fort, and that is why it cost 50 kr. We`re glad to hear you... More

Nordberg fort is the best preserved German fortress in Norway from WWII. Usually the fortresses in Festung Norwegen consist of concrete bunkers and the occasional canon. Nordberg, though, has a lot of the original barracks preserved. Make sure to get a guided tour, which also gives access to the barracks. Extremely interesting insight in the everyday life of German soldiers... More

This small museum takes you through the soul of this part of Norway. As an arcaheologist and a local i am very pleased with the focus on the Bronze Age. The museum is close to several rock art sites from this period. They have a huge canon from the Fort(resses) time in WW2, and a walkthrough of how the emigrations... More

Visited Nordberg Fort on a windy thursday. Stayed warm in the cafe where they serve coffee, lapper (small pancakes) and lots of other things. They also have a nice shop. The surroundings are beautiful and I will definitely be back!
