Overview

The German’s ambitious construction work - the building of Fjell fortress – hugely effected the Fjell Estate and the local community. The German’s workforce comprised Soviet prisoners of war. The Norwegians living on the Fjell Estate took pity on the exhausted and persecuted prisoners and provided them with food and clothing. The prisoners themselves did what they could to sabotage the construction work. The tour takes place outside and includes a steep walk up 600 meters forest terrain. T The English language tour needs to be booked in advance. Please arrive in good time at the meeting place where you'll be able to purchase a ticket from your guide.
