Tønsberg accommodation - see the beautiful Norwegian coast
Said to be Norway's oldest town, Tønsberg is home to around 50,000 inhabitants, and located 11 miles south of Oslo and the Fjell-Norwegen region, on the south east coast of Norway. Tønsberg accommodation is popular among Osloers for weekend and summer getaways - why not discover the town for yourself this summer? It's easily accessible by train and car from Oslo, as well as from Sandefjord, whose airport offers flights to the UK.
Learn all about the Vikings and Norwegian food with a Tonsberg holiday home
Tønsberg's main tourist site is Slottsfjeller, or Castle Rock Tower, which was built in the late 19th century as a memorial to the now ruined Tunsberghus fortress. The Oseberghaugen, a Viking memorial mound, is also interesting. The area around Tønsdorf is home to some great beaches which are perfect for day trips from your Tønsberg accommodation: Ringshaug, Asgårdstrand, the islands of Tjøme and Fjærholmen, among others. The area around the town is great fun to explore, whether on foot, on a bike, or in a car. Embrace the Norwegian countryside, take advantage of having a kitchen in a Tønsberg holiday home, and prepare some typical Norwegian dishes. Try something hearty, like the stews Lapskaus and Farikal, or lighter dishes such as smoked salmon with dill, or crabs with lemon and mayonnaise.
