    Storgata i Jessheim

    by georeiser Written Jun 25, 2010

    Gardermoen is by most people only known for beeing an airport. The village "Gardermoen" in the municipality of Ullensaker is so tiny that there are more moose than people living there.
    But the town Jessheim is only 5-10 minutes drive from Gardermoen. It is a place for having fun, and the nightlife is good in the weekends, ecpecially in the summertime.

    Jessheim is also known for the Nordic region's biggest shopping centre, and to be the home town of Thomas Rodvang and the infamous Tanya Hansen.
