Sandefjord became a market town in 1845. The population of Sandefjord was then 749, and already the town saw much activity within shipbuilding and shipping. The 30 years that followed were prosperous for Sandefjord, as for the whole country. A lot of timber and other goods were shipped from here, and the number of ship owners increased.On the night of 16 March 1900, the centre of town burned down and the subsequent rebuilding brought about stricter street regulations and new street names. In 1968 the municipalities of Sandefjord and Sandar were joined together to become one municipality. Today Sandefjord combines a proud history and a modern community. Here you will find remnants of the town’s Viking past and its whaling period, as well as a variety of restaurants, cafes, good shopping facilities and a rich cultural life.
