This old turbine pump is reused for pumping water into an artificial stream right across the street from Tveitsund Mat og Vinstoge :-) It's previous function was oilpumpe on a regulator at Dynjafoss hydroelectrical powerplant.
The first weekend of august each year there is a rock festival at the old railway station area. This year (2005) Nazareth together with a couple of quite well known norwegian bands, Return, Stage Dolls, E-76 ++, performed. Not bad for such a small community!
Too bad it was too dark and rainy to take pictures!
There was an odour of junkfood by the counter, but they do have a couple of deasant dishes. I did not eat, but my brothers chicken curry was OK. Nice ambient, and we were not bothered by any smell at the table.
There is a another cafe close by, at Treungen Gjestgiveri, but it was never open while I was around.
A couple of kilometers south of Treungen an abandoned railway station is turned into a guest house with a cafe.
Of all places in the world, there is a limousine service in Treungen! It is operated by the people who run Tveitsund Mat og Vinstoge.
