Castle Tower

The Castle Tower in Tønsberg is the city's landmark and signals that the site is an important point in Norwegian medieval history. The tower is located on a mountain above the town overlooking the sea. In summer you can walk into the tower, up all the steps to the top and look out to the same horizon as kings of the past. In fact, there was a time when the kings and the country's administration used the Castle Mount as its centre for several periods. And the castle was besieged by King Sverre and the Birkebeiners during the civil war in the 11th - 1200s. Today you can also see the ruins of a church and Tunsberghus fortress. If a walk to the Slottsfjell tower isn't enough, the Slottsfjell Museum is just a stone's throw away. For others, perhaps the tour continues with a bite of lunch?
