This beautiful town in Telemark is also Henrik Ibsen's childhood home. Skien also has one of Norway's oldest marketplaces and was an important hub for trade in Norway from early times.
An important stop on your visit to Skien is the Henrik Ibsen Museum, which attracts visitors from all over the world. It was here that the Norwegian celebrity lived from the age of 7 until his fifteenth birthday. He is considered one of the most important writers and playwrights of the second half of the 19th century. The museum tells the story of his upbringing and gives a unique insight into the artist's childhood.
If you have the opportunity to visit Skien in August, the Mersmak food festival is an excellent opportunity to expose your taste buds to both local and international gastronomic temptations.
Brekkeparken is a beautiful park area located high above Skien, take a nice walk in the park or visit the local park museum.
