 EDVARD MUNCH´s HOUSE

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. Åsgårdstrand is best known as the place where Munch painted "The Girls on the Bridge". Munch used the house as a summer home and studio up until his death in 1944. Today the house and studio have been turned into a museum.

In this small, southern idyllic town you will find art gallerys, hotel, a couple of bakeries, a café, grocery stores, bank and a pub. There are also several summer open bars and restaurants around the older part of the town. In June every year, Åsgårdstrand celebrates Midsommer - the longest day of the year - with a large fire on the shorefront. Åsgårdstrand is situated 10 km south of Horten, 10 km north of Tønsberg and 100 km south of Oslo by the west coast of the Oslofjord.
