Fredrikstad is the cultural centre of Østfold County. Known as "the Plank Town" (Plankebyen) by the mouth of the river Glomma, it has lots to offer, more than you know.

 The Old Town  
Old Fredrikstad

The Old Town on the east bank of the river is the real pearl in Fredrikstad.

The Old Town, with its fortresses, is a great monument of the past, and it is unique of its kind. Most other fortresses like this have been destroyed in the name of progress, but Fredrikstad have managed to preserve the memories of the 18th century, much to our enjoyment.

The World´s Most Beautiful Voyage (Coastal Steamer) starts or end in Bergen.
