In Norway there is a place that is called Hell. Hell is located in Nord-Trøndelag, just north of Trondheim. It’s not a big place, about 1500 people are inhabitants of Hell, and the train station is it’s main attraction with a sign that says “Hell Gods-expedition” (Norwegian for cargo handling). There is also a couple of geocaches here for the tourists to find. The close by airport (Værnes) is sadly not called Hell Airport.
The name Hell is from the Old Norse word hellir, which translates to “overhang”. The Norwegian word hell means “luck”, often used in the saying “hell og lykke” which translates to “luck and happiness” . In modern Norwegian the word for hell is helvete.
