The Whaling Monument

  •  /  km From You
Overview

Sandefjord's most famous sculpture is a memorial to whaling, created by Knut Steen at the end of the 1950s. The whaling monument shows whalers with oars in an open boat, with harpoons ready and water spraying.

This impressive monument near the harbour is made in the style of a compass rose, and it rotates slowly on its own axis. Sit down on one of the benches and watch!
