With somewhat limited things to see in Arendal, this is worth a small detour from the city centre. It is also situated down by the water so very lovely on a sunny day. It's one of the oldest and largest wooden buildings in Norway.

Really enjoyed our cruise ship stay in Arendal . We toured the the Town Hall and harbor on our short visit. Well worth the time and effort. Nice cafes to enjoy the scenery. Interesting history of the Town Hall.
