Littering and other thoughtless behaviour can easily spoil the appearance of the fortress, so please use the litter bins that have been provided. There is a year-round prohibition on fires and barbecues. Visitors are not allowed to remove parts of buildings, bricks, stones, timber or other loose objects from the fortress.
The walls of Kongsvinger Fortress are high, and some of them are not secured. Be careful when walking along the fortress walls, and keep a close eye on children.
The easiest way of getting to Kongsvinger is in your own car, and there is good parking on the fortress grounds. The terrain is steep, and the entrance and the whole parade ground are cobbled. This combination means that it can be difficult to walk without assistance in some places. The practice here is that, by arrangement, disabled people are allowed to drive all the way into the fortress grounds and park in an assigned space.
The hotel in the old barracks and the restaurant etc. in other buildings have disabled toilets and a lift.
