Fredrikstad, the Nordic/Docs city


Fredrikstad is a town on the waterfront, about an hours travel south-east of Oslo. The town is an experience in itself, as one of the most famous and best preserved old fortress towns in Northern Europe, and from May with a number of outdoor cafés along the town´s riverside. The social meeting aspect of the festival is important, and the festival bar and cafés, and other places for socializing close to the Festival venue makes a good climate for meeting, socializing and exchanging ideas and experiences, finding future partners, asking questions and sharing inspiration.


Nordic/Docs has good and reasonable hotel deals if you wish to stay over, but the short distance between Oslo and other cities in the vicinity also makes it easy to travel to and from each day by bus, train or car.
