Drammen is one of the larger cities in Norway, and lies about 40 kilometres (25 mi) from the capital of Norway, Oslo. The city centre lies at the end of a valley, on both sides of the Drammenselva river, and where the river meets the Drammensfjord. Drammen is also the main harbor for car and fruit import in Norway.
Drammen might be an excellent and easily accessible choice for everyone who wants to experience what a relatively “large” Norwegian town has to offer, only 30 minutes drive from Oslo.
Here you can combine relaxing urban life with golfing, a wilderness expedition, skiing or a ravine expedition a mere 10 minutes drive from the center.
In the last few decades a lot has been done to visually improve the city center. The new Ypsilon bridge which is for pedestrians and cyclists only has opened, the traffic was redirected, a new city beach was constructed, and the river was cleaned. The facelift has been a success, and today Drammen is one of Norway’s fastest growing cities.
