The Fortress was closed for renovation during our visit but is still accessible to the fortress area. There are still guards watching over the fortress and the canons. The view over the harbour on the hill is spectacular. Definitely worth a walk up

As others have said, the fortress is free; a large area to walk around and a glorious walk around the harbour to get there (if the weather is kind). The castle interior entry is 70NOK for adults and 50NOK for seniors. I would recommend getting the audio tour as there is little written information.
You also have the Norwegian resistance museum nearby. You really should make time to see this if you're in the area.
