Overview

Drøbak is also called the Christmas town, the garrison town, the arts town, the restaurant town and the golf, tennis and riding town.

The old wooden houses with their neat rose gardens are an experience in their own right.
Drøbak is situated at the narrowest point of the Oslo fjord. From about the middle of the 1700s, it developed into a small town, supported by timber industry and shipping. The town obtained its own Trading Charter rights in 1842, prior to this it was controlled by Christiania (Oslo). Drøbak was also used as an outer port for Christiania. In the days of sailing vessels, the inner parts of the Oslo fjord were often frozen during he winter months and ships were unable to reach the city. The water around Drøbak was open for most of the year.
