 Fredriksten Fortress

Fredriksten Fortress is the most conspicuous part of the town´s scenery where it looms proudly above the town and gives Halden its characteristic appearance. The first defensive installations in Halden were constructed in 1643 - 45.

The fortress was constructed on two parallel ridges. On the north ridge the walls extend from the Dronningens bastion at the west end to Prince Christian´s bastion at the east. The south ridge is fortified with Prins Georgs bastion and the main Overkongen bastion on the hill´s highest point.

Between these two ridges lies the citadel with a number of interesting old buildings. Beyond the citadel the Borgerskansen faces west, overlooking the town from the hillside.
