Plan your trip to Tønsberg and Færder

From the seafarers of the Viking Age to the tourists of today – people have always flocked to Tønsberg. Norway’s oldest city is located one hour’s train ride south of Oslo, along the sunny side of the Oslofjord.

Tønsberg in the Vestfold region is Norway’s oldest city. It actually dates back to the Viking era! By the Tønsberg harbor you can travel back in time at Vikingodden to experience the true size reconstruction of the legendary Oseberg Viking Ship and Klåstadskipet. You may try sailing a Viking longship too, if you dare!

Explore the remains of Scandinavia’s largest medieval fortress and learn more about Tønsberg’s incredible history at the Slottsfjell museum. The Haugar Vestfold art museum is a popular venue for contemporary art. Music festivals like the Vestfold Festspillene sets the tone of the city the whole year through.

South of Tønsberg lies the beautiful island group Færder renowned for its remarkable beaches and skerries. Thousands of tourists come here in the summertime. In Færder you’ll find the islands Nøtterøy, Tjøme and Hvasser, where you can enjoy lazy days in the skerries, by the harbor or at sea.

The scenic spot The World’s End, Verdens Ende is situated at the southernmost tip of Tjøme. Its unique lighthouse makes it a popular destination even when all elements of nature are in play!
