Åsgårdstrand

Åsgårdstrand is a small, but very charming town 100 km south of  Oslo and by the west coast of the Oslofjord.

The town was increasingly known as an important center for artists and painters and since the 1880s a vast number of internationally famous painters has either visited or lived in the town. Painters like Edvard Munvh, Christian Krogh and Hans Heyerdahl. The reason for this is the very special light which the best artists either went to Åsgårdstrand or Skagen in Denmark to experience.

This isn’t a town you’ll do a lot of shopping. But there are some small shops were you can find unique art, a beautiful coastline were you van go for a walk and Norways first Munch Museum. The famous norwegian painter, Edvard Munch bought his first house in Åsgårdstrand. His house is open to the public and his personal belongings are still there.

Like Munch or not, you are going to enjoy the enchanting light and the amazing atmosphere that is in Åsgårdstrand.
