A good way to start a visit to Enköping! Nice to read about Ida Spak!

Free entry, clear advantage, wouldn't have paid for the museum if it cost money. Although there is an elevator in the 3-story museum, I do not recommend wheelchair users to come

It's like a home, but it's a museum with a well-distributed space?? It's a three-story building, but it's interesting that each floor has a different era?

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.
