Drammen, Norway

Panoramic wiew of Drammen, early in the morning.

The city of Drammen is located 30 minutes from Oslo (the capital of Norway), surrounded by a beautiful valley and with a great river running through it. The city was founded in 1811 and has managed to preserve a number of old traditional buildings and market squares.

Drammen can offer a wide variety of social and cultural activities. As the river is deemed to be the city's main street, a number of activities and festivals revolve around the river. In the city centre you can enjoy museums, restaurants and shops. In terms of outdoor activities, there are a number of tracks for hiking or bicycle trips to enjoy during the summer, in addition to golfing and boating opportunities.

In wintertime, you can enjoy the prepared cross-country ski tracks or downhill skiing facilities close to the city centre.
