Overview
More
The manor house at Gulskogen was erected in the Louis XVI style in 1804. The house contains the original furnishings that belonged to several generations of the Arbo family. The painter Peter Nikolai Arbo had his childhood here, and there are several paintings made by him in the main building. The Gulskogen Park is patterned after an 18th Century European model. Especialy the long alley of lime is quite impressing. The maze in the park is the only one of its kind in Norway. Peacocks and other animals wander freely around the formal garden.

Original untouched features in the lovely house. Gardens with peacocks. We saw a crowd of Eritreans celebrating a wedding and it was just beautiful. Highly recommended.

Beautiful manor with peacocks and other birds and animals. Great place for a picnic as a couple or a little stroll in the large garden, labyrinth and old bridges.

I'm in it for the garden. I don't know that I would go out of my way to visit it, but taking my bike there for a solitary walk on the grounds is a nice outing. Bringing kids and having a mini-picnic is nice too....More
