airbnb Halden, Norway

A true border town, Halden sits on the River Tista at one of the most southerly crossings between Norway and Sweden — making it a great stopping off point for those travelling between the two countries. Its strategic location also means there is a rich history to the area, perhaps best exemplified by the impressive fortress and museum of Fredriksten, which occupies a hill overlooking the harbour. Other top attractions include the preserved manor house and museum of Rød Herregård and the wider area’s beautiful forests and waterways, which make it a great destination for history fans, culture enthusiasts and lovers of the great outdoors. And, whatever your travel plans, there are plenty of top Airbnb vacation rentals available to suit your needs. These are some of the best in Halden, Norway.

1. One-bedroom loft near the town centre (from USD 68)

This popular loft flat is a great option for couples or solo travellers eyeing up a stay in Halden but can accommodate up to three people at a stretch thanks to the couch in the living area. Located within a charming 19th-century building, it is well placed for the town centre, shops and eateries, which are just 10 minutes away. And fans of history looking to stretch their legs will enjoy the walk to Fredriksten fortress. Past guests were very impressed, praising the “really comfy” flat, its balcony and the well-equipped kitchen. The position just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of town was also a big hit. Other amenities include a TV, laundry facilities and wi-fi internet.
