Slottsfjellet

View of Slottsfjellet (Castle Mountain) from the Frodeåsen hill north of Tønsberg, Norway.

 

Slottsfjellet is the main landmark in Tønsberg, both geographically and historically. Though the old fortress is long gone and the 130 year old tower is more for show than purpose, the 63 m tall "mountain" still serves a purpose as the official salute spot of the community. It is also the location for the annual Slottsfjellsfestivalen music festival.
