The fort in Alanäs
On April 9, 1940, Norway was occupied by Nazi Germany. This led to a major mobilization on the Swedish side, which meant that a number of fortifications were built up gradually. Such a fortification, or "skans", can be visited at the neighboring village Alanäset. It is beautifully situated and a cultural trail runs through the area.
