Tønsberg, founded in the Viking Ages, is Norway's oldest town.
The world renowned Oseberg ship which was found just north of Tønsberg centre
bears proof of this. In the Middle Ages Tønsberg was one of the centres of
power. Tønsberg is situated by the sea, below a mountain with the ruins of a viking castle. Nowadays it is a buzzling city with shops and restaurants. At Christmas it is beautifully decorated, often covered in snow. In summer it is a popular holiday destination, with stunning skerries only minutes outside the city.
In the Tønsberg region you will find the sunniest, most pleasant climate in Norway, the very best beaches, unique skerries and beautiful landscape, as well as a touch of a rich past - vikings and whalehunters, kings and slaves. In the lively city centre there are hundreds of interesting shops and almost as many exciting restaurants, pubs and sidewalk cafés. There is an active cultural life and exellent possibilities for sport and recreation in Tønsberg. Since 1990 the town has been involved in the project "Cycle Town Tønsberg - Nøtterøy". As well as this the town is working towards beeing a modern ecological town.
