Hell, Norway

Hell is a small village in Stjørdal, Norway with a population of 352. It has become a minor tourist attraction because of its name - people like to take the train there to get photographed in front of the station sign. At the old warehouse in the station area there is a sign "Gods expedition", an archaic form of the Norwegian word for cargo handling office (godsekspedisjon).

A yearly blues festival, Hell Blues Festival takes place in the area around Hell each year.

The Norwegian word for hell is "helvete", and there are several places in Norway with that name as well.
