Hotels of historical significance

The fortress hotels run hotels that are not only historical, but of historical significance. Napoleon’s northern flank, the Kongsvinger agreement with Sweden, crucial for Norway’s independence 9 April 1940, Blücher, military strategic fortresses that have protected Norway, halls where all Norwegian kings have eaten, room 213 where Knut Hamsun wrote «Swarmers», room 2015 where Edvard Munch was tricked into believing that Hedda was dying, a gathering place for the Christiania bohemian, or castle halls where Greta Garbo danced with the princes of Monaco.
