Tracking Munch

muteplay/pauseplay/pause

There are several day-trip options from Oslo to historical places and idyllic spots around the Oslofjord, where you can get a glimpse of Munch’s life and work.

Once you have experienced the impressive collection of Munch’s works at MUNCH, and visited his home and studio at Ekely, why not venture a little beyond the capital?

A day in Munch’s footsteps

Munch, was a famously restless soul. He sought the peace of mind that he never managed to find in the big city in the idyllic archipelagos of the Oslofjord and at stately mansions in the countryside.

A turbulent love life

Dynamic Variation:

He bought a house here, which has been a museum since 1947. It remains open to the public today.

Dynamic Variation:

About an hour and a half south of Åsgårdstrand lies the lively city of Kragerø, where Munch painted several of his famous works. Pick up a map at the local tourist office to discover the many marked spots where Munch found his motifs. The Munch tour shows you the most charming, hidden streets of this harbour town.

A change of scenery

In later years, Munch spent time on the opposite shore of the Oslofjord from Åsgårdstrand. If you make the short boat trip from Horten to Moss, you can visit the island of Jeløya.

Stroll around in this beautiful archipelago landscape and take in the impressions that gave Munch inspiration for some of the most memorable works in his career.
