In the garden we have a cubby house.
Tønsberg, founded in the Viking-Ages, is Norway´s oldest town. The world renowned Oseberg ship which was found here bears proof of this. As well as being a commercial and shipping town since the Viking ages. Perhaps the most important landmark in the town is Castle Hill (Slottsfjellet), the tower standing on a 63 metres high cliff with steep sides.
Tønsberg has throughout the year, especially in the summer, a variety of cultural events, festivals, shows, concerts and theatre, both indoor and outdoor.
Every July the festival "Slottsfjell" is arranged in Tønsberg. The festival takes place in one of Norway’s most spectacular outdoor festival areas, right in the heart of Tønsberg, with all the usual facilities nearby.
The Ouayside area has now become the most popular place for a summer promenade or a visit to the summer shows. There are restaurants, marina, benches, flower barrels and crowds of people, all in maritime surroundings.
