Kongsberg
The Essential
Situated 80km west of Oslo in the heart of a mountainous region, Kongsberg extends over both banks of the River Lågen, which wends its way south down the Numedal valley. Kongsberg has two centres linked by a bridge: the modern town on the east side (Vest) and, on the other side of the river, the old town, where most of the sights of interest are located. Highlights include an 18C church and the town's many museums, especially the Norwegian Mining Museum and Ski Museum.
