It is one of the nicest places around that we been to in Oslo. The whole atmosphere and ambiance to the place is different. There are breathtaking views all around and then shops and restaurants are perfect to meet your immediate food and souvenir requirements. The only thing is that you have to move a bit away from the main... More

The place is picture perfect and is a little quaint neighborhood out of the main town and the fresh air and ambiance of the place will cheer you instantly. The houses and the layout of the place are breathtaking and then there are lots of shops and restaurants around as well. You could take bus to the place or have... More

We arrived on a sunny day in the middle of October. Lovely town. Great views and super calm. I am not sure if there are any open attractions in October there but just walking around and sitting by the water was enough for us in the sunny weather. There were also a few open coffee shops and restaurants. Transportation: Bus... More

A small Norwegian town with beautiful wooden shops, restaurants and houses set on the Southern coast of OsloFjord. It is perfect location to keep a sailing yacht and sail around Oslofjord. It is accessible by an express bus from the Oslo Bus Terminal. I reccomend spending at least an afternoon here!

Drobak is a seaside tourist village. The post office is one of the main attractions. Hundreds of letters sent to Santa end up there and the guy behind the counter has white hair, white beard, and a large stomach. There are some nice cafes and shops in Drobak. Take a nice walk along the ocean. You can spend the whole... More

Peaceful, beautiful and tranquil port village. Excellent seafood restaurants in town. And the most amazing Santa Claus house. They offer two choices for you : either to post your post cards chosen from the shop on the next day or one week before Christmas. How sweet! Hope my friend will be surprised when they receive the cards this year.

Drøbak is a very quaint town in Akershus county, Norway. Drobak is situated fairly near Oslo. The city is located along the Oslofjord. Very pretty town with a little aquarium. Lovely walks and gorgeous views. Had delicious sandwiches and cakes at a coffee shop in the centre of the town.
