Welcome to Seljord
A treasure chest filled with culture
Beautiful Seljord in Upper-Telemark is a treasure chest just waiting to be opened. Visitors will find wild flowers growing on grass covered roofs, and children who still sing the songs their great-grandfathers sang. Did you know that “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” was the first written down by two Norwegians named Asbjørnsen and Moe? They travelled often to Anne Golid’s cabin in Seljord to hear her stories, which they included in their folk tale collections that are known around the world. The Reverend Magnus Brostrup Landstand, and Miss Olea Crøger hiked through the mountains and forests of Seljord collecting folk songs that we still hear today in Norwegian churches and in Norway’s thriving folk music movement.

Few final adjustment works have finally brought to completion three wooden costructions along Seljord Lake, in the Telemark district of Norway. The three structures – a sauna, an observatory deck and a shelter for fishermen on the lake shore – have been designed and built
by a group of international students during a 10-days workshop led by Sami Rintala and Dagur Eggertsson in October.
