Festningen Castle is part of Festningshotellene, a group of hotels in unique destinations that have all played a big part in Norway’s history. Festningen Hotel & Resort is located at Kongsvinger Fortress, and boasts fantastic views over the town of Kongsvinger and the Glomma, Norway’s third-longest river.

The fortress is one of the most important defensive sites and cultural monuments in Hedmark county. The historic fortification, once built to repel enemy forces, is now a venue for outstanding cultural activities. The fortress has been restored in recent years, with several important historic buildings being renovated and modified for new uses.
