'''Hell''' is a village in [[Stjørdal]], [[Norway]] with a population of around 350. 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 train station sign. At the old warehouse in the train station area there is a sign "Gods expedition", an archaic form of the Norwegian word for cargo handling office ("godsekspedisjon" would be the standard form).
