While Norway is not particularly known for its haunted houses, there are a few locations that have gained a reputation for paranormal activity. One such place is the Akershus Fortress in Oslo.
Akershus Fortress is a medieval castle and fortress that has a history dating back to the 13th century. Over the years, it has served as a royal residence, a prison, and a military stronghold. There have been reports of various ghostly sightings and eerie experiences within the fortress.
One of the most famous stories involves the ghost of a woman named Mantelgeisten, or “The Mantle Ghost.” According to legend, Mantelgeisten was a woman who was walled up alive in the fortress during the medieval period. Her ghost is said to roam the halls and has been described as a woman in a long, flowing white gown.
Another haunted location in Norway is the Akershus University Hospital in Oslo. This hospital, which is now closed, was built on the grounds of a former mental asylum. It has been the subject of various ghost stories and paranormal investigations, with reports of shadowy figures, strange noises, and unexplained occurrences.
