There is a small village inside of Vardoehus festning, including several houses and even a church. Tourists can walk on top of the small churchtower in order to have a great view. You will find several old cannons there as well. The first fortification was built there in the 13th century but Vardoehus festning as you see it nowadays dates back to the year 1734.
