Welcome to Grimstad - Town of the Poets!
On overgrown Paths (Knut Hamsun) In the town of the poets you can follow Knut Hamsun’s ”overgrown paths” and learn about Henrik Ibsen’s years in Grimstad at the Ibsen Museum.
The Wild Chorus (Knut Hamsun)
In Grimstad the granite is alive! Kilden Theatre Fjæreheia, the theatre in the quarry, gives the audience an additional experience of drama, music and art alike.
Hunger (Knut Hamsun)
Enjoy delicious meals in the delightful restaurants in the town centre and by the harbour. The bakeries serve hot chocolate and lovely cakes and the coffee bars invite you to browse in a paper, watch people passing by - or sit and be seen.
Vagabonds (Knut Hamsun)
Biking through the summer: to cafés, concerts, cinema, shows! To the bakery, along the waterfront, to buy a newspaper at Narvesen’s at Odden, or for a warm, norwegian fish cake for lunch at Torskeholmen.
The Lady from the Sea (Henrik Ibsen)
- will thrive in our guest harbour with it’s Blue Flag, the sign of quality, with numerous regular guests, and locals strolling along the harbour.
Terje Vigen (Henrik Ibsen)
Bathing in the sunshine or fishing in the rain, rent a small boat and be the Captain for a while! The bigger boats are also for rent: M/S Bibben, M/S Østerøy and S/S Solrik – with their own captains.
The uttermost barren isle (Henrik Ibsen) Nøgne Ø, the Norwegian brewery that refuses to compromise. Committed to taste, committed to craft beer. Groups and tours welcome. «There lived a remarkably grizzled man on the uttermost barren isle».
Welcome to Grimstad!
