Experiences in Holmsbu

  • Storgata, Asker
  •  /  km From You

Holmsbu is a lovely town with charming white wooden houses, know among artists for its shining light and beautiful view. Perfect for a long weekend or daytrips from Oslo. Explore the shops, galleries and restaurants which also are open on Sundays.

Holmsbu - lovely all year round - southern idyll 50 minutes from downtown Oslo


Less than an hour's drive from downtown Oslo, you can walk the Culture Memorial Road, Småtråkk or other tours with captivating storytellers.

The art: Here you will experience the light and the landscape that inspired the artists in the Holmsbukolony, see paintings in the small gallery on the water's edge in Støa or visit the artist Birgit Askestad in Bugtegaten, walk through the eh ... magical troll forest to Holmsbu Picture Gallery, which by the way is award-winning and preserved for its special architecture.

Food and coziness: Good food is to be found at Schulestedet in one of Holmsbus's oldest houses in Schulerudgården, with the area's nicest backyard or go to the Privaten Café, Holmsbu Badehotell or the pub Café Juno.

Experiences around Holmsbu center: Take a dip from the rocky mountains at Rødtangen Camping, rent the KOK sauna in the harbor to enjoy the warmth of the sauna followed by a refreshing bath, rent a cabin at Knatvoldstranda Camping, or get a massage and care at Holmsbu Badehotel. The experiences are varied and many. Enjoy an ice cream at the Ravnsborg Gartneri, go on a jungle safari in Holtnesdalen or stone-age memorials on the Rødangen.

In the summer months, Holmsbu is vivid with a rich cultural life. Visit the exceptionally beautifully decorated Holmsbu church, play croquet at Myhrene farm, enjoy a freshly baked pastry while greeting the sweet animals at Sand farm, grab an ice cream at Bryggekkitchenet or secure good organic vegetables for your dinner at Bergsmyrene farm, before walking the coastal path. You get maps at the tourist office in Holmsbu!

Trade: Nice shopping at Bea before finding unique things at Liten in Storgaten and get a cold drink or freshly brewed coffe to go at Holmsbu Handel.

But you can also just sit. And enjoy the tranquility and sight of the white houses, the sea and the boats. And let the hum bum ... What we are trying to say is that life is delicious and full of good opportunities in the Holmsbut outlets!
