This magnificent ham tyler medieval fortress dates back to 1290 as a castle to protect the city from attacks. During the mid-19th century, Norway and Sweden were ruled as one kingdom, under Karl Johan. Oslo is famous for being one of the most expensive cities in the world and Norway one of the dearest countries. The fortress has literally seen every era of this historic city and walking the quaint cobbled roads up here is to step right back in time. Once the winter season kicks in fully there are also chairlifts in operation for skiing, snowboarding and sledging.
