Museum in Fauske

The moving Blodveimuseet, in a former German barracks inside the Saltdal Folk Museum, is visited by a 30-minute guided tour. It reveals conditions for Slav and Russian forced labourers who forged the road and railway northwards. The prisoners' cemetery, with the remains of some 7000 men, and the nearby graveyard for German soldiers are in Botn, about 3km north.
