Excellent for trips to the Islands outside Kragerø, one of the finest archipelagos in Europe. Jomfruland ("Virgin Island") is perhaps the peak here, but there is a number of smaller and bigger Islands, where one can bring a bike, or just go hiking. The area also offers some interesting mining history, back to ca. 1550.
Also, the ferry company (www.fjordbat.no) offers cruises in the summer season.

Berg - Kragero Museum

Berg is a charming manor house in Louis XVI style from 1803. The house used to belong to the family Homann in Kragero. The last owner, Miss Jenia Homann who died in 1943, donated it to Kragero Local Authorities for use as a museum. The main building has interior and furniture from different eras, mostly from the 1800s, but also from older periods and from Jeia Homann's own time. In addition to the manor house, there are also several buildings around Bergsbukta that have been transferred to the museum. All of them have connection to the coastal culture in Kragero district. A new exhibition building houses collections from coastal environment and Exhibitions devoted to art and coastal culture. The park and belonging forest is a beautiful and popular recreation area with nature trails and fine Beaches for bathing in Helle Fjord. There are good parking space, guest harbour and well-protected natural harbour in the area. The museum building has museum shop and cafe. Berg-Kragero Museum owns and runs also Kittelsen House in the centre of Kragero. It is where artist Theodor Kittelsen was born in 1857, and is now a museum for Exhibitions of Kittelsen's works.

The museum is small but packed with information. This small community had a tremendous role in marine and ice history. Visitors get the opportunity to simulate situations involving moving ice and rocks. Most of the descriptions are in Norwegian but the staff speak English.

Mine jenter hadde sin største ferieopplevelse her, Godt tilpasset opplegg for nybegynnere, varierte timer og andre aktiviteter. Oppvarmet svømmebasseng var genialt, for badevannet i sjøen var ikke mye å skryte av.. Forbedringspotensiale når det gjelder mat, her var det ikke stort grove kornprodukter, frukt og grønt. Så en sunnere linje mht kosthold hadde vært fint.

Escape Room Kragero

Reviewed By Martine S - Kristiansand

Syns det er kjempe moro at Escape Room har kommet til Kragerø!
Sammenlignet med tidligere opplevelser jeg har hatt med escape room fremstår dette som amatørmessig. "escape room" stemningen var fraværende, da det mellom de ulike rommene ikke er hel-vegger, vi holdt på å løse et rom samtidig som et annet lag å man kunne hele tiden høre dem snakke. Det manglet noen virkemidler som blant annet lyd og lys for å gjøre dette spennende.
Oppgavene var i for seg greie, ikke noe mer. Det var et lite rom man skulle arbeide i, sammenlignet med tidligere opplevelser jeg har hatt med escape room.
De skal også sies at når vi løste rom samtidig med et annet lag(som vi ikke kjente) evnet ikke verten å gi oppmerksomhet/veiledning til begge lag. Dette bør jobbes med.
299 pr pers for 45 minutter.
Jeg kommer ikke tilbake.

6. Kragero Art Association

P.A.Heuchs gate 6, Kragero 3770, Norway +47 35 98 09 32

Kragero Art Association welcomes you to exciting Exhibitions on the second floor at P. A. Heuchs Gate 6. Our association was established in 1935, on initiative of Erik Areritz. In November in the same year, the first exhibition was arranged at Legatsalen with several artists such as Guido Schjolberg, Ole Kornin, Olaf Tangen and Per Lia. Since then, the art association held Exhibitions of such as Collett, Thaulow, Krohg, Schjolberg, Tangen etc. Kragero Art Association has had several premises throughout years. From 1971 to the end of the 1980s, the association was held at a beautiful hall in Wiborggaren. At that time Kragero Art Association was renewed in many ways, and the old principles are still fundamental of our now existing association. It was a rich time for the association in Wiborggarden. It pursued high quality, and a rich selection of both national and foreign artists were viewed, together with Exhibitions of National Gallery. The hall became suitable for first-class Concerts, both for Concerts Norway and other performers. Afterwards, Wiborggarden developed oneself as a culture house, and further, it was needed for private purposes. Eventually Kragero Art Association ended up in today's premises at P. A. Heuchs Gate 6. Would you like to be a member of Kragero Art Association? Our association is open for everyone, both for residents and guests, and everyone is welcome. The membership costs for a family NOK 250, single member NOK 150, student/senior NOK 100 and senior couple NOK 130. Welcome to Kragero Art Association.
