FUNKELIA

Kongsberg - of reknown for its long and active skiing tradition - with a stable, continental climate, is a focal point between hills and mountains, popular with both residents and visitors. Kongsberg, the «Ski Town» has a fine skiing centre just next to the centre of the town. There you will find several skiing slopes, also a special one for children. The skiing centre includes a modern chairlift, excellent opportunities for slalom, telemark, monoski, halfpipe and snowboards, as well as a fine sledging run, which together with many kilometers of cross-country tracks contribute towards making the area very attractive indeed. The cosy ski pub offers a pleasant atmosphere between runs! In the city of Kongsberg there is a lot to do all year round. You might visit the picturesque «Gamlebyen» (the Old Town) with its special atmosphere: charming places to eat, antique shops, arts and crafts and ancient, venerable buildings.
