The border town Halden 国境の町

In the middle of April I visited mission groups in Halden and near by. I had never visited this town before. Halden is a border town close to the Swedish border, southeast of Oslo.

In the old days the most likely enemy to invade Norway was Sweden. That is why there is a fortress in Halden. The Construction started in 1661. Nowadays it has no military significance, but is a popular tourist attraction.

4月に国境の町、ハルデン(オスロより南東)、に仕事のために行って来ました。この町の一番有名なところは下の写真の城です。昔、スウェーデンは一番恐れている敵でした。今、この城は主に観光スポットです。

The view is magnificent, but it rained the day I was there.

The fortress seen from below. 下から見る城。

Many old houses below the fortress have been preserved. So Halden has both an old section and a new section. 古い町がよくまもられている。
