Littering and other thoughtless behaviour can easily spoil the appearance of the fortress, so please use the litter bins that have been provided. There is a year-round prohibition on fires and barbecues. Visitors are not allowed to remove parts of buildings, bricks, stones, timber or other loose objects from the fortress.
The fortification town of Fredrikstad has many high walls. Some of them are not secured. Be careful when walking along the fortress walls, and keep a close eye on children.
The fortress is not especially adapted for disabled people, but work has started on finding good solutions for universal design. You can get to Fredrikstad Fortress – the Old Town by ferry, bus or car. The roads in the fortification town are cobbled, but the area is relatively flat. The Tourist Information Office and the town museum are disabled friendly. There is a disabled toilet in the old pump house in the south-western part of the town.
