Kristiansand Cannon Museum

Welcome to Kristiansand Kanon Museum "Batterie Vara"

Here are the world's second largest cannon ever mounted on land. The reason that these giant cannons came to Møvig is: When the Germans had taken Norway and Denmark in 1940, they had a great need to shut Skagerrak. It was then planned a 38 cm. canon battery comprising 4 guns here on Møvig, and Hanstholm in Denmark. This is the shortest route between Norway and Denmark and is 116 km.
