Show sight on mapBook Ticket*

Skansen in Tromsø is a fortification and is considered to be the most valuable cultural-historical facility in the municipality. The rampart is the only visible medieval trace in the city. The fortification has been built on an artificial island in Tromsøsundet, and towards the land side a stream ran down where Nordre Tollbugate now goes, and then has split in two to form a moat. The dating of the fortification varies from the 1000s to the 1400s, while the 1200s and Håkon Håkonsson's church building on Tromsøya have often been mentioned as possible occasions.
