Southern Norway Agder GRIMSTAD

Town walk - the town of poets

  • Jernbanebrygga 1, Grimstad
  • +47 37250168
  •  /  km From You

Grimstad has been home to both Henrik Ibsen and Knut Hamsun, and is often referred to as the "town of poets".

It has left its mark on their writing, as they have left their mark on the town. Join us on a walk in the footsteps of these literary greats, and listen to stories from when Grimstad was their home – stories about love, satirical observations, and overgrown paths. To add to the experience, we recommend the "porke" – a Grimstad speciality, and Norway’s best pastry – or a delicious fish cake from Fiskernes Salgslag.
