Yesterday we visited Hegra fortress just north of Trondheim. It was originally built as part of the defense against the Swedes after the Union was dissolved in 1905. For three weeks in 1940 248 Norwegian soldiers and one woman used the fortress as a base for fighting the German occupants. Eventually the Germans managed to surround the fortress and the defenders had to give up because of lack of supplies.
Not much stuff is left in there, but there's no entrance fee so you can walk around without a guide, and it's wet and creepy, so it's still an interesting place for photography.
