Here are pictures from the old town of Fredrikstad.

The Old town in Fredrikstad is a much-visited sight, as it is one of the best preserved fortified towns in the Nordic region.

The fortified town was founded in 1567 by King Frederik II, and was constructed according to Dutch architectural models, with wide water-filled moats and high earth ramparts. Here you can visit the largest model railroad exhibition in Scandinavia, and don't miss the city’s very own scale model of «Gamlebyen» – the fortified town. It's all in the details!
