Nebbelunde Church is a very interesting old church building. Surrounded by a nice lukewarm cemetery that gives a pleasant and calm feeling.

Nebbelunde Church is located on a hill in the southern part of the village of the same name, near the banks of the now dried up Rødby Fjord. The church is probably built in the 12 - 1300s, it consists of Romanesque choir and ship and a Gothic porch, all built in monk stone. The Gothic-style vaults are not the original ceiling of the church, as Romanesque churches were originally built with flat wooden ceilings. The church has never had a tower, but in the west end you can see that in the masonry has been set aside for a never erected tower.

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.
