 THE OLD TOWN ( GAMLEBYEN )

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. Today, Kongsten Fort is part of Fredrikstad Museum and owned by the council (since 1942). In the summer you can take part in one of the many guided tours that are arranged. The Old Town on the east bank of the river is the real pearl in Fredrikstad. In 300 years, The Old Town has seen little change. The renaissance buildings, the gates, the drawbridge, the moat and the cobbled streets make this beautiful area the best preserved fortress town in Scandinavia.

There are 4,9 kilometres of pedestrian trails around The Old Town. If you come here on a Saturday in the summer or autumn time, you may have luck and find something you cherish at the weekly market at the Market Place next to the statue of king Fredrik II. The Gamleby ferry between Cicignon and Old Town until. 2:30 Friday night and Saturday night.
