PICTURES from PORSGRUNN

There are two town centres, Brevik in the south and Porsgrunn in the north. Porsgrunn is very urbanised and more developed industrially than most other parts of Norway. Brevik is Grenlands summer town.

 Porsgrund Porcelain Factory  
Porsgrund Porselensfabrikk

The porcelain factory is situated near the river in Vestsiden. The company´s production plant is a popular tourist attraction. It is open by prior arrangement to groups who can follow production from clay right through to the finished product, decorated and fired. The factory shop is open all summer.

Guided tours of the porcelain factory take place from Mondays to Fridays, at 10:00, 11:00 and 13:00. The tour takes just under an hour and the factory welcomes groups or individuals. Guided tours must be arranged in advance by telephone.
