Oscarsborg Fortress (in Norwegian: Oscarsborg festning) is a coastal fortress in the Oslo fjord, close to the small town of Drøbak (approx. 40 km from Oslo). The fortress is situated on two small islands, and on the mainland to the west and east, and was military territory until 2003 when it was made a publicly available resort island. The fortress is best known for sinking the German heavy cruiser Blücher on 9 April 1940. 

In 2014, Oscarsborg Fortress was given protected status, effective from 9 April that year.

The Oscarsborg Hotel and Resort provides basic accommodation in a historical venue. The hotel has 89 rooms and various conference facilities. There is a ferry service to Oscarsborg from Drøbak. The journey takes approx. 10 minutes.
