The city was founded in 1641. Christiansholm fortress was build to protect the town from any invasions. Today it still stands on the shore lines of the city centre of Kristiansand as if it is still guarding it like it has been doing for the last 4 centuries. You can visit the inside to get a better feel for wartime of the 17th and 18th century and life during these times.
