Join a city walk in Rjukan's streets and get an insight into the history of the world heritage city of Rjukan.
On July the 4th, 1907, Norsk Hydro decided to build a town in the Vestfjord Valley.
With full focus on the production of artificial fertilizers to work perfectly, the city was constructed with all the necessary features that a complete city needed. Young, promising architects were commissioned to create architectural gems. All drawings were approved by Sam Eyde before construction was completed.
Everyone was well taken care of, but the class distinction was significant. "Tell me where you live and I know where you work," they said at Rjukan. It was no coincidence where you lived, and your rights differed whether you were a worker or a director.
Join our knowledgeable guide on city walking this summer and get a glimpse into Norway's most modern city on Rjukan 100 years ago. The hike concludes with an exclusive visit to the turbine hall at Såheim power plant.
Join us for walks every Wednesday in the period June 26 - August 7 at. 12.00 from Rjukan Torg.
