“Good little time filler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

good cheap way of seeing some of Bergen there are extra parts to pay to get into however you can enjoy the fort just milling about the grounds!
a great little way to relax and save some money maybe, it also looks fantastic by night!

“An interesting diversion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Bergen is one of the most expensive ports we've ever visited - but on the fortress site is a free museum (with free coffee, no less) of the Norwegian resistance in WWII. You will find guns, uniforms, newpaper articles, stories of Norway's efforts to free themselves. A somber history of some brave souls.

“Rosenkranz Tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This site was especially interesting to us. We were told it wasn't particularly interesting and not to bother. It was built in 1560's. The readings in each room explained very nicely the history of the tower. This facility is open from 15 May to 31 August. Check it out--
