Wasn't sure what we would see when we signed up for this ship excursion but was pleasantly surprised. This is a hidden gem to find as this German gun is huge and amazingly is still fired every year as part of a celebration. The interesting part is that everyone in Kristiansand has to open their windows on the day of the firing since the concussion wave caused by the cannon shatters the windows otherwise. Who knew...

Such a nice little place. Around the small harbour are cafes, restaurants and small stores. The fish n chips looked amazing. Cross the bridge and walk to the old Fort, nice views from here, great photos too. Walk into town and see the old church, although this is being restored on the outside it still is magnificent to see

Located in my hometown of Kristiansand this place offers exciting learning and history from the WW2.

As a bonus the area is great for those Sunday walking trips in beautiful nature.
