See the movie "The Kings choice" or in Norwegian / Danish "Kongens Nei/nej" and you will know the story from the 9th of april 1940, when the fortress sunk the big german cruiser "Blücher" with the fortresses ancient guns and torpedoes. So interesting

It is recommended to book a separate guide that can tell vividly about Oscarsborg - we had that. We had an amazing guide who knew Oscarsborg's history. It was fun to find that our Canadian guests were just as happy as us. They said that they did not know anything about the war in Norway before the visit. A guided tour that includes the torpedo batteries is well spent money.

Drøbak was an easy and affordable day trip from Oslo by bus and Oscarsborg was an interesting and historical museum to visit while there. You need to purchase tickets at the landing where you access the ferry which is well marked and right on the water. It is approximately a ten minute boat ride. If you want to wander the grounds like I did there was no fee. If you want to view the torpedo bay you must be on a tour. I wasn’t able to take a tour but wandering was enough for my imagination and interest. The cannons and bunkers are explorable and captivated my imagination. The actual Fort is in fantastic shape and has been converted into a museum. Even though the text explaining the exhibits is only in Norwegian there is a free app that has several language options. You can still see where the Fort came under attack in WWII and the stone walls still show the ‘scars’ of battle. A very short bridge connects the two islands Oscarsborg is located on and the secondary island has a marina and restaurant.

We had the Historical tour including the torpedo battery, this is a two-hour roundtrip on the island. We had a excellent guide that really knew the island and the islands history. I did not have a boring second and the trip could happily lasted another hour.
