The Dutch quarter is where you find the oldest buildings in Flekefjord. This old part of the town got its name from the extensive trade with Holland from the 1600th until the 1800th centrury. There are few traces left behind from those times.

Description

This old part of the town got its name from the extensive trade with Holland from the 1600th until the 1800th centrury. There are few traces left behind from those times.

The Dutch came to Flekkefjord to buy timber and rocks. Rumour has it that rocks from Flekkefjord is found under Schippol airport in Amsterdam.

This cosy town area, with whitewashed wodden houses, picket fences and lush gardens is a result of the rich herring fishing that took place in the early years of the 19th century. Take a stroll through the narrow lanes and soak up the old history.
