Overview

Walk around town and sites of historical interest

By the tourist office, cross the road at the traffic lights. Enter Storgaten (pedestrian precinct), and then turn left by Nedre Tverstredet. Walk past Reimannsgården, Grimstad Art Society. Continue up Vestregate, cross Nygaten and follow Markveien past the Technical College. Turn left into Torsgate, then cross Tønnevoldsgate where you’ll see Grøm, the oldest
farm in Grimstad, directly ahead.

Continue on to Berge Gård, one of Grimstad’s former manor farms. Today, it is used as a nursing home, and the gardens can be enjoyed by everyone. At the end of Bergekleiva is Grimstad’s old tannery. This was where Otto Andersen, in 1869, found all he needed to open his workshop; clean water and oak bark. As you enter Frivoldveien, you can see Fuhr's old production facilities. This impressive brick building/wine cellar was used to produce wine and juice until 1989. On your left is the old Grimstad Vinegar Brewery dating back to 1941-43. Continue along Frivoldveien and up the hill to old Grimstad Hospital with its two large, old wooden buildings. The green unit was where the author Knut Hamsun was detained after the war. Follow the foot and cycle path up the hill and down to Levermyr Idrettspark (sports centre w/ swimming pool). Then turn left and continue down Kirkegaten.

As you approach the lower part of town, turn left towards the harbour into Henrik Ibsens Gate with the Ibsen Museum. Turn right and follow the quays until you reach the tourist office.
