The history of Drøbak is intimately linked to the fortifications of Oscarsborg. Donde el fiordo de Oslo se hace más strecho, se construyó una fortaleza entre 1643 - 1645. Hacia el final de la década de 1800 hubo un desarrollo a gran escala de la fortaleza, en la dissolution de la union un Suecia en 1905, Oscarsborg tal vez fue el más fuerte de los recursos militares. The hecho of which part of the fort was built by Swedish Albanians is a paradise.

But the most important thing was the retrieval of the fortress in 1940. When Hitler's Germany invaded Norway without a declaration of war on April 9, 1940, an improvised garrison was trained to train the German "Blücher" cruiser with fugue from cannon and torpedoes. The intruders found the saber of his own medicine, because the arms "Aaron" and "Joshua" eran of German mark. These were despised by the coronel Birger Eriksen, who were honored after the war by his deportees.

Oscarsborg is a illuminated monument in Drøbaksundet. Also located in the upper part of the tierra a photo of the ancient fortaleza, here a guard of the canons in 1909.

The Germans had gathered key people and very important resources on board the Blücher. When the cruiser was killed, about 900 men were found at the bottom, and the invasion withdrew. The Norwegian Family, the governing body, the parliament and the reserves of the Bank of Norway have been evacuated from Oslo, and the bases for the Norwegian war refugees from London have been sent. Blücher is looking at a war dragon at the bottom of the Oslo Fjord, in Askholmene noreste of Oscarsborg. There was a mid-ambient clock bombing that was combustible in 1994-95. Only one of the buildings of Blücher was recovered and there is a monument in Badeparken in Drøbak, close to the statue of Coronel Birger Eriksen.
