PICTURES FROM FREDRIKSTAD

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 Bridge  
Old Fredrikstad

A silver bow-shaped bridge across the river. 824 metres long and 40 metres tall it connects the two sides of the riverbank. But if you travel from The Old Town to the western side of the river where you find modern Fredrikstad.

The Old Town, with its fortresses, is a great monument of the past, and it is unique of its kind.

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