Daytrip from Oslo to Kongsvinger

Kongsvinger has for several centuries been a natural stop for Norwegian-Swedish kings between the capitals Oslo and Stockholm. Today, the train stops here several times during the day, and just over an hour from Oslo you find yourself in Kongsvinger.

When you visit Kongsvinger, the fortress and Øvrebyen are a place you just have to take with you! Do you love great views? Are you interested in military history? Or do you enjoy yourself most while strolling through the charming narrow streets, visiting small galleries or drinking coffee in a café with a distinctive character? Here you will find Norway's only Women's Museum and you can learn more about the city's history and the painter Erik Werenskiold's life in his hometown Kongsvinger.

Today you can combine a visit to the fortress with an overnight stay in adventurous surroundings at Festningen Hotel & Resort. There you can enjoy a spectacular view of Kongsvinger town and Glomma - surrounded by beautiful nature.

Welcome to one of Norway's oldest and best-preserved wooden buildings in Øvrebyen!
