Halden - Visit Østfold

Welcome to Halden!

Halden is an idyllic little town nestled down by the Iddefjord. Cobblestone streets, large and small shops, cosy restaurants, river promenades and the guest harbour are all within easy reach downtown. Above the town lies the mighty Fredriksten fortress. This large and magnificent fortress is one of the most frequently visited tourist attractions in Norway. 


Halden has unique areas if you like hiking in the forest. You can find marked hiking paths and trails in the municipality.
