Join a walk with historical buzz in Arendal's old town Tyholmen. Maybe you're learning something about the city you did not know before or never thought was true?

Did you know, for example, that Arendal was the largest maritime town in the Nordic countries from 1850 until 1880? Do you wonder why the city was called the Venice of the North? Did you anticipate that Arendal Old Town Hall is Norway's tallest and second largest wooden building from the Empire era in the early 1800s?

This and much more you will hear about on our walk through the city and the cobbled narrow alleys on Øvre Tyholmen.

  • Stroll across landmarks in Arendal like the famous "Glassheisen" and learn about the city's past.
  • The tour lasts for approx 1hour and 45 minutes 

Kindly note that the Old Town Hall, Trinity Church, and Kløcker's house tours must be booked separately.
