DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Tonsberg Fortress

The ruins found at this historical site are a silent witness to how King Harald I united the country and it illustrates the importance of Tonsberg as Norway’s oldest town. The castle was built in the 13th century, by King Haakon Haakonson. To get a worthy view of the old town and the beautiful blue horizon, just take a few steps up the decrepit stairs.

Day 2: Vestfold County Museum

Museum-hopping in Vestfold County is a nice way to explore Tonsberg, in a short time, and the Vestfold County Museum is just a few minutes away from the train station. This spot highlights a dazzling display of excavations, but the main attraction is the mind-blowing Oseberg Viking ship. To see a humungous blue whale skeleton, stop at the museum’s Whale Hall. Other must-visit attractions include the Vestfold Farmyard and the Viking Hall.

Day 3: Brygga in Tonsberg

Brygga which literally means “pier”, is an immaculate spot for strolling and enjoying the restored Quayside buildings and peaceful sea view.

To sight another point of interest, the magnificent display of Maserati’s and racing boats, shouldn’t be missed.
