About the Tour

Join me for a riverside stroll through Fredrikstad, which has long been considered one of Norway’s loveliest cities. Along the way I'll give you some insight into the history of the city, and tell you what makes its people some of the country’s friendliest. I’ll also recommend some stops along the way.

The highlights of our walk include:

• The friendly rivalry between Fredrikstad and its twin city Sarpsborg
• What makes Fredrikstad Northern Europe's best preserved fortified town
• Why you might hear a glockenspiel ringing out in the town
• Why Fredrikstad has a French influence
• How to say hello in the local dialect

So let's take a walk together and find out what Fredrikstad really has to offer.

Lars Engerengen

A lovely night in May 1968 he was born, at Lillehammer, Norway. The interest for geography, history and transport/tourism has been following him all the time since, and today he lives high up north, administrating the public transport system in Finnmark, the northernmost county of Norway.
His passions in life within hobbies are writing and photographing, and he has published a book of the “Hurtigruten” – the coast liner going from Bergen to Kirkenes. He is aIso a permanent contributor to the largest Encyclopaedia in Norway.
Lars loves reading history of different places, and are especially focused on Norway, Finland and Russia. He is more than willing to share the history, and that is why he has made a lot of walking tours at VoiceMap.
