Mysen with a quick trip to Havnås/ Trøgstad

On historical grounds

In Mysen you will find an important part of Norway's largest inland fortress; Høytorp Fort. In historic surroundings, the meal will be at Restaurant Fortet. This was the original barracks when the fort was in use, and has today become a pleasant restaurant with tasty home-cooked food.

Then there will be an exiting tour of the fort itself. The tour offers dark tunnels, good views and an educational exhibition. The fort has its own fortress museum, where the fort's history is communicated. Remember warm clothes - it can be cold inside the fortres.

Høytorp was the main fort in the Fossum district's fortifications, and was built in the period 1912–1915. The area consists of 40 buildings and the fort took part in the battles against German forces in April 1940. During the war, the 4 tower canons were removed and transported to the west of Norway. A lot of work has been done into bringing three of the cannons home, and in 2015 they were brought back to the fort.

The trip continues to Folkenborg Museum. This is a museum that really is situated on historical grounds. In the 12th century, this was the site of a church and vicarage, and it was here that Inga from Varteig came and gave birth to the king's own son, Haakon Haakonsson, in 1204. Here are houses from farms and squares in Indre Østfold. Especially the large, listed Narvestad building from 1724 is interesting with its richly decorated interiors. Here there is a collection of agricultural implements for both machine power and horse power. Folkenborg has, as one of the few museums in the country, a collection of horse-drawn vehicles. Here the great diversity is shown, from simple carts to large enclosed stately carriages.

Then the trip goes to Havnås Gamle Skole (Hanås old school) - a unique shop with a lot of soul. There are many small and large treasures here! The range includes, among other things clothes, jewellery, gift items, old furniture, wrought iron, linen, shoes and much more – all presented in charming surroundings. Adjacent to the shop is a very cozy cafe where good dishes are served.

Bamsrudlåven at Mysen is the last stop for the day. In romantic farming surroundings, you will be served a delicious, short-distance dinner. At Bamsrudlåven you will also find a farm outlet. Among other things, home-made ice cream with eggs from the farm's 7,500 free-range hens and fresh milk straight from neighboring farms is sold here. They are happy to give a tour of the farm if desired.
