The park by the local museum in Skien is a good place for relaxation. Bring a book, find a bench or just walk around. It might even put you in a romantic mood, if you are together with your woman.

Great park at the top of Skien. There is a large playground for the children, historical buildings and a restaurant with a view of the city.

A very beautiful tourist attraction for the whole family. There are several old buildings there that are worth to see. Our tickets that we purchased at Henrik Ibsens museum were also valid at Brekkeparken. We had a guided tour of the 2 old buildings there. The tour guide explained to us in such a very interesting manner how it was... More

Beautiful park with many historical buildings from 1500's to 1800's on the grounds. Was within walking distance of my hotel, though steep climb by road or many stairs! :-) Did not take tour so didn't see inside of buildings. Visited early in June of a year with a late, cool spring,so tulips and lilacs were still in bloom.

I visited a park a few times during spring-summer 2014. It is on the top of the hill and one of the ways to get there is walking on the stairs carved with phrases from 'Peer Gynt'. The park is not big, but very lovely. The first time we were very lucky, because the gardeners were replanting tullips, so every... More
