Lovely town

Great for a walk over Oslofjord, ideal for children - there is a nice playground. The cottages around are lovely.

We visited just a few days before Christmas. Once you have looked around the " Christmas Store" - there is not a great deal to either see or do. It is usually cold in this part of the world and in December, it gets dark early. Not a place we would revisit.

Like most places it's dark, cold and quiet in the winter. But alive in the summer. Fishing, swimming and drinking coffee in the sun is good anywhere in the world. But especially good here.

I often visit Drobak. A cosy town with maybe the best atraction Julehuset(The Christmas shop) Ideal for families with children especially arround Christmas but also at other times. In Drobak you can also see big ships coming by in the small straight going in to Oslo. The fortress outside Drobak is also a must. The fortress stopped the germans in... More

I actually drove trough the entire peninsula from Drobak to Oksval and back to Oslo on the other side of the peninsula. Drobak is officially Santa's place...but no Santa in September. The town however is charming, typical small cozy shops and pastry shops. Worth a stop if you are around.

We enjoyed the visit to Dxobak, because we took the public transport through the fjord and the weather was very nice, which helps. Once in town we walk around a little and stopped for coffee and pastries. Nice trip.

Definitely worth the visit. Parking is a little limited, especially when the weather is nice, so be prepared to walk for a bit.

You get here by bus from oslo central station, the 500 bus, ride it for about 1 hour and you get to the small town of drobak. Get off at Drobak torg and you will be in the central market where the Christmas shop is. You can send cards at home to arrive in December or right away. A lot... More
