    A brick lighthouse built in 1839 and a cast iron one built in 1938 are the tallest items on Jomfruland. The older tower is turned into a museum. Admittance is NOK 20.

    Theodor Kittelsen was born in Kragerø 27 april 1857. http://www.olavsrosa.no/en/objektinfo.aspx?id=27607

    Kittelsen and Erik Werenskold are known as the "typical norwegian" artists, famous for illustating norwegian folk tales. Here is an example: http://www.trollshop.net/trolls/kittelsen/.

    His work is often mysterious, sometimes grotesque: http://www.darkest-destruction.com/darkness.html

    Make your own waffles, pour your own coffee or take a soft drink from the fridge, and put the money in thr bowl on the counter :-)

    The picture shows the cafe from the top of the old lighthouse.

    During the summer there are cultural arrangements here with poetry and ballads.

    If you do not have your own boat, you can get to Jomfruland by ferry a couple of times daily, or go by taxi boat. Leave your car in Kragerø; only residents are allowed to drive on the island.
