Drøbak Things to Do

    Tregarden Julehus

    by MikeAtSea Written Nov 17, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In front of Tregarden Julehus is a triangular traffic sign. It looks like the universal symbol to yield - white with a red border - but this sign has the silhouette of a somewhat rotund gent packing a rather large bag.
    Tregarden Julehus translates to “wooden Christmas house”, and the yield sign is a courtesy to the Nisse, Norway’s Santa Claus. Tregarden Julehus was opened in 1976 by Willy and Eva Johansen. The gregarious Eva, a Liv Ullman look-alike with red hair piled atop her head, is often on hand to greet her customers.

    The world’s only lutefisk (dried cod tenderized in lye) museum. Here, you can enjoy a unique museum in praise of the lutefisk.
    Aquavit is also given a fair bit of attention, and you can smell the various spices.

    I allow myself to call it the best restaurant in Drøbak, even when I haven't visited anyone else :)

    The service is excellent, the food is great, the restaurant is located near the harbour with a great view. The whole atmosphere is nice and cosy

    Favorite thing: Norway is one of the largest petrol producing nations on earth, one would assume that petrol is relativley cheap. Think again - a litre of petrol set you back over US$ 3 or EUR 2.60 - take this in to consideration when planning a road trip, since fuel is almost double to other countries on earth!
