THE HISTORY

Drawing of Odderøya with ships on the sea

The island, which was originally a peninsula, was separated from the mainland in about 1660 by an excavated channel. After the canal was completed, the connection to Odderøya was maintained using boats, later over a swing bridge. It was replaced in the early 1930s by a fixed road bridge.

ABOUT US

We are a good group who like to work both voluntarily and politically to preserve Odderøya's distinctive history, and make it possible for the local population and others to enjoy the wonderful area Odderøya is.
