Kongsvinger Museum


The settlement of wooden houses that grew at the foot of Kongsvinger Fortress during the 17th and 18th centuries is called Øvrebyen. The most prominent buildings in this neighbourhood are the large houses from the turn of the 19th century, which at that time were inhabited by the families of officers and well-to-do merchants. In addition there are the smaller homes of soldiers and the farm buildings. The listed merchant's home Aamodtgården from 1801 houses a city museum, art exhibitions and a café. Øvrebyen offers a nice walk.
