The Adolf Gun is a unique attraction. It is the only remaining German gun of its kind from WW II in the world. At Trondenes not only one 16″ gun exists but, the whole battery with four guns. However, visitors are not allowed, for safety and security reasons, to visit more than gun no. 1, the museums gun. Trondenes is the only place in Europe where a whole battery from the German Atlantic Wall can be visited and seen. A visit that will give you an idea of the advanced German weapons technology at the beginning of WW II.
