Fredrikstad, Norway

Fredrikstad is proud to host the Tall Ships Races for the fourth time in 2023 – following highly successful events in 2005, 2014 and 2019. Norway’s sixth-largest city, it has a long and proud tradition of shipping and maritime activities, which dates back to the 13th century.

During the Race, the fleet will experience the exhilarating challenge of sailing through the magnificent archipelago in the Outer Oslo Fjord. It protects the city from the open sea, and gives Fredrikstad the title of Norway’s “gateway to Europe.”

Away from the shoreline, Fredrikstad is home to one of Scandinavia’s best-preserved fortress towns. It was once an important trading centre between Europe and Scandinavia, and it provides visitors with strong historical architectural surroundings to enjoy.
