Description

Tvedestrand, the small, traditional sailsman’s town by the Norwegian south coast, is one of two book town in Norway. The book shops of Tvedestrand offer a treasure of second-hand books for the collector or the enthusiast. In addition to the shops Tvedestrand offers a unique atmosphere of white wooden houses and a pleasant harbour area.

Visiting Tvedestrand we recommend you to make a stroll through the picturesque wooden house quarter down by the harbour. In this quiet and pleasant area of the small town you also find the bookshops. Most of them are spread out in what is becoming a triangle of bookshops. Within this triangle there is a total of 5-10 bookshops depending on the season. The bookshops specializes in different areas, although most of them also have a broad selection of general fiction and non-fiction books.

The book town is also the children's book town. In the summer, there will be children's events in the Museumshagen (Museum's garden) all Wednesdays in July.
