Went with colleagues in April 2017 - the fortress sits high on a hill. Reminded me of the fortress in Oslo. Built to act as a deterrent to their neighbours, who had invaded in the past. Its a source of pride with a wonderful restaurant. Woth the visit

Hiking the smugglerstrail 'Spiker'n'

In the beginning of July this trail is a great experience.
From airport Oslo-Gardermoen take a buss to Kongsvinger and another buss to Kirkenaer.
Use www.dnt.no for information about the trail.
Obs: make use of a tent or the small cabins in the wood for your overnight stay and be sure of water.

Well worth taking time to visit. You can go into the old buildings - which are clearly marked with their functions and dates. This would be great for children - who can let imaginations run wild! Take the time to look over the river and the town.
