The hotel is just like another hotel with welcoming staff, neat and clean room. But the scenic beauty you get to see around this place is very serene and calming. The way to reach this place also has nice views going through village and farm lands. Morning breakfast was also great and there were loads of options to eat from. I surely recommend to go here and feel the scenic beauty. Plus they are kids friendly.

Very good service. Great food! I asked for a vegan option and I was not disappointed! The main course was a Mushroom "thingy" on root vegetables and potatoes on the side. The dessert was vanilla ice cream made from soy milk, strawberries and merengue made with aquafaba. Delicious experience in a very beautiful setting with a very nice view of the sea.

Kristiansten Fortress

Kristiansten Fortress was built to protect the city against attack from the east. Construction was finished in 1685. General Johan Caspar von Cicignon, who was chief inspector of kuks fortifications, was responsible for the new town plan of Trondheim after the great fire of 18 April 1681. He also made the plans for the construction of Kristiansten Fortress.

The fortress was built during the period from 1682 to 1684 and strengthened to a complete defence fortification in 1691 by building an advanced post Kristiandsands bastion in the east and in 1695 with the now vanished Møllenberg skanse by the river Nidelven. These fortifications were encircled by a continuous palisade and thereby connected to the fortified city. In 1750 the fortress was modernized with new bastions and casemates to protect against mortar artillery.
