Visit one of the largest battleship-cannons put on land in Europe during the second World War. With its four guns it became the largest and most powerful battery along the 5000 km long Atlantic Wall, and today these cannons are the only ones still intact and possible to visit.

Summer 2021 there are guided tours every Wednesday and Sunday between July 4th and Augst 15th. Guiding is only in Norwegian, but let us know if you have other language requests.

You need to book tickets in advance. Meeting point is clearly marked before you come to the main gate at Trondenes army camp. Follow the signs to Adolfkanonen, and it should be easy to find.

Contact us at least 48 hours before desired time for guiding outside of the ordinary tours. More information about the Adolf Gun will come when we get new updates.

NB! All visitors are required to meet at least 10 minutes prior to the tour at the starting point. All visitors over the age of 16 needs to bring photo ID for registration before entering the army camp. All visitors to the guided tours need to enter the area with their own car. It is not possible to walk or cycle to the canon that is on military property!
