Owner description: Activities Blaker Skanse offers beautiful surroundings, both because of the park, the fortress and of course the old buildings. If you are interested in history, and you like a special atmosphere, Blaker Skanse i really worth a visit. Blaker Skanse is one of Romerike’s best preserved and less known pearls. It is located on the top of the hill, viewing Glomma, the largest river of Norway, and with buildings from the middle of 1700. Blaker Skanse was built in 1683 as a defence against attack from Sweden, and to prevent the enemies (Swedes) to cross the river. From 1917 till 2003 Skansen was a place for education of craftsmen, art teachers and designers. Today, the old fortress is used for offices, cultural creativity, happenings, weddings, parties, exhibitions, meeting, courses and conferences. Historical walks on the fortress, ghost walks, theater, discourses, salute with canon and rental of costumes from 1700 and 1800. This is some of our attractions. If you want to be an actor or actress, or maybe be audience at our outdoor historical plays- please visit www.skansespillet.no

Historical!! The Swedes were stopped, if I have learned History right. It is close to the Glomma river so it´s in beautiful surroundings by a little village.

Visited April 2014
Thank Trond B
