The town of Moss and its surrounding areas have a rich industrial heritage, a flourishing art scene, and the most beaches in the whole of Østfold county.
You are free to choose between almost 50 different beaches in and around Moss. Some with bare rock faces, others with sand or grassy hills. In Moss town centre, you will find “Sjøbadet” and “Fiske” located on the Jeløya side, and if you prefer more rural surroundings, you will probably favour the beaches on the peninsula of Jeløy, in the charming village of Son, or at Larkollen.
Moss offers day-trip walks through lush countryside along the Oslofjord, through woods and beautiful cultural landscapes to viewpoints and past cafés serving delicious home-made goods. Along the way, you can stop at galleries and handicraft workshops.

The gallery shop has a wide range of prints, art, books and design products, and in the café, you can enjoy the famous Alby pastry. Nearby, the almost 300 years old manor house Røed Gård has a lively cultural atmosphere where several artists have their own workshops and shops, and where you can find galleries for both handicraft and pictorial art.
At Refsnes Gods, which has an an impeccable location by the Oslofjord, you can spend a romantic weekend with gourmet meals and fine wines from one of Norway’s most exquisite wine cellars. The main building dates from 1767 and the estate has a unique art collection, including works by both Edvard Munch and Andy Warhol.
