Halden Overview

Halden is an old town. It's a small city, located at the banks of the Oslo fjord. Home of the Fredriksten Fortress. This Norwegian fortress was constructed in the 17th century (1661) as a replacement for the border fortress at Bohus, which had been lost when the province of Bohuslän was ceded to Sweden by the terms of the Treaty of Roskilde in 1658. The fortress was named after King Fredrik III of Denmark and Norway, and the town of Halden was also originally named after him, having been known as Fredrikshald between 1665 and 1928. Halden, with the publisher OppdagHalden.no was the first city in Norway to have it's hidden gems listet in Field Trip and Google Glass. This city is well worth a visit.
