PICTURES from HORTEN

The coastal strip stretching from Horten to Åsgårdstrand offers unique experiences for bird and animal watchers. Åsgårdstrand is best known as the place where Edvard Munch painted "The Girls on the Bridge". The National Park with its famous Borrehaugene grave-mounds is both a nature and historical experience.

Horten You will undoubtedly enjoy the streets of Horten. The main street, Storgaten, is the longest shopping street in Norway. Illuminated with old-fashioned style street lamps and landscaped with small and large trees, the street invites visitors to stroll its length, enjoying the sights and sounds of this friendly town.

The street contains a wide variety of shops, cafes and restaurants, and the many sidewalk cafes accentuate its easygoing seaside resort town ambiance.
