After Bodo was bombed during World War II, the Germans built a fortress at Bremnes to guard the approach by sea to Bodo. The adjoining areas are excellent for fishing and hillwalking. A walk up the path to the top of Bremnes is rewarded by a -magnificent view of the scenic island of Landegode. On clear days you can enjoy the midnight sun from 2 June to 10 July.

Pretty cool site with numerous bunkers and gun turrets (even no guns are on them). Watch for slippery rocks. When you gone the area, there is a nice cove with clear water.

This is an informative place to visit, as well as providing some lovely views of Bodø and its surrounding. Built during the blockade time to protect against English warships. Used also in the second World War to protect Nazi installations.

About 45 minute walk from city centre lies the Bremnes fortress, built in the 19th century during the Napoleonian War. It's a nice walk and a perfect spot for pick-nic.

We walked around the area of the fort in winter. It's not that spectacular, but the view towards the city is really nice. Nothing was plowed, so you have to be careful if there is more snow than we had.

A little further south as you get to the top of the hill before entering Bodo there is a rocky mountain... More

Built to ward off British attacks during the Napoleonic Wars when Bonaparte imposed his Continental System on Europe to try to choke off trade from 'the Nation of Shopkeepers'. the Bremnes Fortress was obliterated by the Nazis in WWII. It has since been painstakingly reconstructed by volunteers and now makes a fitting monument at the far side of Bodo's harbour.... More
