 Edvard Munch

In picturesque Åsgårdstrand Edvard Munch´s House, with he himself dubbed "The Happy House", is Åsgårdstrand"s biggest attraction. Edvard Munch bought this 18th century mariners house in 1897. Munch used the house as a summer home and studio up until his death in 1944.

It was here that Edvard Munch lived and found the inspiration for so many of his famous paintings. Today the house and studio have been turned into a museum.

Situated on the southern tip of Horten township, this cozy town with its characteristic white clapboard houses contains much else besides, and is still a hospitable and sunny seaside resort with excellent hotels and summers filled with visitors from far and near.

For boaters, the town is a gem, and has an almost Mediterranean atmosphere when the sun is at its warmest. Åsgårdstrand is an idyllic town to wander about in and experience the famous light so appreciated by artists. You will find Oriental rugs in Galleri Roseng, antiques at M.T. Corsmaier Thoen and paintings at Galleri "M", Galleri Åsgårdstrand and Ragnar Almen.
