Drøbak is a city in Norway and it used to serve as the winter harbor for Oslo . It is located about 28 km south of the capital city along Oslofjord. Currently it has a population of around 13,000 people.

About

Drøbak is a harbor city situated on the banks of the straits through which ships sail to the capital of Norway, Oslo . In the past, when the sea around Oslo froze during the winter time, the ships anchored in Drøbak and the goods were transported to Oslo by land. The harbor is not so busy today and the atmosphere in the city is quite calm. People go from Oslo to Drøbak in search for local curiosities.

Tourist Curiosities

There is a large amount of beautiful houses in Drøbak that are interesting especially for their wooden forefronts. The city is also known for its spectacular Christmas decorations. During Christmas, the city is a popular destination of tourists who shop in a special Christmas store called Tregaardens Julehus. Children can leave their letters for Christkind here, too.
Saltvannsakvarium is a special museum, the only one of its kind in the world, which focuses on lutefisk — the traditional Nordic preparation of fish with the use of hydroxide. Another museum is located nearby, with the interest in sea life and an exposition about ship engines. A fortress Oscarborg from the middle of the 19th century is situated on an island in the middle of the fjord, close to the city of Drøbak. The fortress became famous after drowning a German battleship Blücher on May 9, 1945. It is publicly accessible. You can reach the fortress from Drøbak’s harbor by ship that sails there 14 times a day.

Accommodation & Food

The city offers a wide range of accommodation, especially private. In search of good food, head to the Torget Square where you will find many pleasant restaurants and cafes.

Transport

Drøbak has a good connection with the capital city of Oslo both by sea and land. Bus No. 541 goes to Oslo every hour and it takes around 60 minutes. You can also choose one of the ships in the harbor. Even a tunnel was built under Oslofjord by which you can reach the city of Drammen , when driving through the tunnel, two straits are passed easily. A toll is collected for cars, motorcycles can drive through for free.
