Gamle Bybro is the old town bridge and it is also called the Gate of Fortune. it was built in 1861 and yes, even originaly it had those striking carved red gates. There was an excise house at the end of the bridge, and it is now used as a day centre.

When I saw this bridge, from the distance (and admittedly my eyesight isn't the best) I thought it looked like a Chinese bridge or something, only without dragons. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the architect was some very locally born Carl Adolf Dahl

Sidenote: the bridge is closed to the traffic.

Address: Bakklandet
