Nice place to picnic under the Himalayan cedars. Nice view over the roofs of the village. The rose garden requires an additional gardener!

The town hall park is very well maintained The flower beds are magnificent The rose garden is worth the detour and the vegetable garden is a good idea to supply schools

Nice place... Rose garden to visit. I put a 2 star for the wearing of the obligatory mask for the visit of the Museum of the leather and the tannery, in spite of the low attendance ... Too bad.

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.
